Forum 2019

On December 5 and 6 2019, the Global Health Alliance Australia convened the first WHO Collaborating Centre Forum at the Sidney Myer Asia Centre, the University of Melbourne. This constituted the inaugural activity of the Network for the Australia-Based WHOCCs, a new initiative funded by the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services and hosted by the Alliance. Sixty-five attendees represented the WHO Collaborating Centres, Australian and Victorian Governments, The University of Hong Kong and the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences. The Forum and Official Launch of the Network was commended and there is now an unprecedented level of goodwill, relationship development and momentum towards the evolving Network whilst its prescribed role and planned activities are consolidated.
