WHO Collaborating Centre for Research Information Sharing, E-learning, and Capacity Development

The Global Health Network (TGHN) was designated a WHO Collaborating Centre on 17th May 2022 with a focus on research policy and development and ethics. Specifically, this collaboration informs WHO’s work for the development of an online training tool for health research and the Essential Curriculum for Research of the WHO Special Programme on Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR), and to provide support to WHO for research bioethics in the context of Health Emergencies to build and strengthen capacities. See below for links to activities which align with TGHN’s vision to enable research in every healthcare setting.

World Health Organization (WHO) collaborating centres are designated by the Director-General of WHO to form part of an international collaborative network in support of its programme at the country, intercountry, regional, interregional, and global levels, strengthening health development information, services, research, and training.
