Hubbub over WHO hub: UTS centre showcased

An Australian World Health Organisation collaborating centre put on an exhibition of its work in the Asia-Pacific region to celebrate the launch of the centre as secretariat of WHO's worldwide network.

The University of Technology, Sydney-based WHO Collaborating Centre (WHO CC UTS) set up the exhibition to celebrate nurses and midwives across the globe who are working to improve the health of populations. It showcases the friends and colleagues in the Asia-Pacific region with whom the centre has worked.

WHO CC UTS was selected as secretariat from 44 such facilities internationally last year. It is the first Australian institute to be given this role.

The centre has supported 50 projects in 25 countries across the region in the last seven years through partnerships with local counterparts.

UTS vice-chancellor professor Attila Brungs said the election was a great opportunity to further strengthen the skills, capacity and voices of healthcare professionals in the Asia-Pacific and globally.

Brungs and deputy leader of the federal opposition, Tanya Plibersek, unveiled the exhibition.
