WHO Collaborating Center for Knowledge Translation and Health Technology Assessment in Health Equity
The Institute of Population Health at the University of Ottawa was designated in April 1996 as the WHO Collaborating Center for Health Technology Assessment. In 2007, the Centre for Global Health at the University of Ottawa was designated as the WHO Collaborating Center for Knowledge Translation and Health Technology Assessment in Health Equity. The Centre was redesignated in October, 2015. The Centre promotes the concept of technology assessment, the establishment of technology assessment systems, methodological support, training seminars in member countries, and collaborating among institutions with similar intent. To date, the Centre has focused on the development of a "tool kit" for needs-based and equity-oriented policy decisions and decision-aids for patient information.
