WHO-FIC Collaborating Centres

WHO Family of International Classifications (WHO-FIC) Collaborating Centres are a network of designated WHO Collaborating Centres that are supporting WHO in the development, implementation, and maintenance of the WHO Family of International Classifications. 

These Collaborating Centres represent different geographic regions and countries and may be specialized in a specific language. In addition to the WHO Collaborating Centres for the Family of International Classifications, WHO Collaborating Centres for Classifications, Terminologies, and Standards, and Non-Governmental Organizations in official relations with WHO (NGOs) contribute to the classificatons agenda. Collectively these organizations make up the WHO-FIC Network. WHO Member States may participate in the work of the WHO-FIC Network through designated representatives.
