WHO Collaborating Centre

About the Centre

The Institute for Global Public Health was designated as a WHO Collaborating Centre in 2021 to support WHO’s work on universal access to primary health care services. This involves improving knowledge about equitable access and utilization of services in response to community health needs, as well as developing methods and tools to assess and monitor the performance of the health system.
