WHO Collaborating Centre for HIV Surveillance    Back


University accreditation does not apply to courses from this institution


Mission of the WHO Collaborating Centre for HIVSurveillance is to contribute to increasing capacities in the implementation of effective, sustainable and context-specific surveillance systems for HIV/AIDS, which enable evidence-based development of HIV prevention, care and treatment.

The WHO Collaborating Centre for HIV Surveillance is based at the Andrija Štampar School of Public Health, which is part of the University of Zagreb School of Medicine. The Andrija Štampar School of Public Health is recognized as a prestigious and unique public health institution in Eastern Europe. The Centre was established as a regional HIV Knowledge Hub in 2003 under the framework of the Project "Capability Strengthening for Improved Utilization of Financial Resources to Fight HIV/AIDS" and funded by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and WHO EURO.

The central objective of this project was to support countries in the optimal access to and use of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM) and other large grants through supporting the development of local technical capacity in launching large-scale responses to HIV/AIDS. The Knowledge Hub was designated the WHO Collaborating Centre for HIVSurveillance in March 2008. The first training courses were provided during 2004. Until May 2015, over 1800 participants from 93 countries have been trained in HIV surveillance.
