World Health Organization Collaborating Center

The World Health Organization (WHO) was established in 1948 by the United Nations as its specialized agency for health. WHO's objective, as set out in its Constitution, is the attainment by all peoples of the highest possible level of health. WHO Collaborating Centres (WHOCC) are national institutions around the world designated by the WHO to collect and disseminate information on world health issues, provide education and training, and participate in collaborative research. The WHO Case Center is charged with research and clinical training in home care nursing and is one of only 12 designated centers in the United States.
