Renewed status of WHO Collaborating Centre for intersectoral approaches for health and development
Once again we a part of the network of WHO Collaborating Centres, which are an important contributor to implementation of WHO’s goals and strategies. This status is an important recognition for our work on the field of building capacities for intersectoral investment in health and development of the Pomurje region, the country of Slovenia and of international environment in last 10 years. The first time we acquired this status was in 2009 for the period of 4 years, and again now, on October 8, 2014, for the same period. On one side this is a great recognition, but on the other side it brings a great responsibility to realize set goals and tasks; still it is an excellent motivation to further develop innovative intersectoral approaches and solutions to improve health for everyone and to reduce health inequalities.
