Usher Institute of Population Health Sciences and Informatics

WHO Collaborating Centre

The WHO has confirmed a further 4 year designation for the Centre for Population Health Sciences as a WHO Collaborating Centre on Population Health Research and Training.

The Centre for Population Health Sciences became recognised by the WHO in 2013 as a WHO Collaborating Centre on Population Health Research and Training.

WHO collaborating centres are institutions such as research institutes, parts of universities or academies, which are designated by the Director-General of the WHO to carry out activities in support of the Organization's programmes.

We are delighted to have been approved for redesignation by the WHO, for a further 4 years.
