The first Regional Consultation of WHO collaborating centres (CCs) in the South-East Asia Region was held in New Delhi on October 19 to 21, 2016. The objective of the consultation was to “enhance the capacity of WHO CCs in the Region to support WHO’s organizational mandate”. Historically, CCs have acted as valuable allies of WHO, helping the organization to implement its mandate in the Region. The consultation sought to strengthen this relationship and help collaborating centres align their activities with the current mandate of WHO.
