World Health Organization, Regional Office for South-East Asia, August 2017
The South-East Asia (SEA) Region sees the collaborating centres as an impressive and valuable network of cutting-edge health institutions, not just valuable for the country in which the collaborating centres are located but also beyond. These are institutions that have been strong allies of WHO in its work for years, helping WHO implement its mandate and achieve current goals. There are 96 collaborating centres (as of June 2017) in the SEA Region, the bulk of them in India and Thailand. These collaborating centres are distributed in more than 65 institutions across 42 cities of the Region.
