UTS World Health Organization Collaborating Centre elected to lead Global Network

The University of Technology Sydney WHO Collaborating Centre (WHO CC UTS) for Nursing, Midwifery and Health Development UTS was elected to head the Global Network of WHO CCs for Nursing and Midwifery worldwide whose members are 44 centres across the world.

To mark the achievement, WHO CC UTS launched an exhibition showcasing its work in the region. UTS Vice-Chancellor Professor Attila Brungs and the Hon Tanya Plibersek MP, Federal Member for Sydney, Deputy Leader of the Opposition, Shadow Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Development, unveiled the exhibition at UTS which will be on display until October 2015.

“One of the best contributions that I hope Australia makes globally is to share some of the strengths of our marvellous health system with our region and globally, but also to take a little bit of time to learn from our neighbours,” said the Hon Tanya Plibersek during her speech. “I’m so pleased to see so many representatives of Pacific Islands in particular here today to learn what we can do to be a better partner and a more active global citizen, particularly when it comes to investing in health services in our region.”

In its leadership role WHO CC UTS will dedicate resources to nurturing and co-ordinating global collaborations, projects and resources involving all international partners to improve health outcomes.

The exhibition also celebrated a visit by Australia Award Fellows participating in the annual South Pacific Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officer Alliance Fellowship Program funded by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The 12 Fellows were from Niue, the Cook Islands, Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea, Tonga and Kiribati.
