Establishing Strategic Alliances for International Leadership
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International

Title:Secretary General
In response to the complexities of health services delivery within the context of cultures, world events, medical technologies, natural and manmade disasters, WHO recognized the need for external resources to assist it to meet its goals. In line with WHO’s policy that research in the field of health is best advanced by assisting, coordinating and making use of the activities of existing institutions, WHO Collaborating Centres were developed to support WHO with external expertise at the local, country and international levels. Of the 1,000 Collaborating Centres worldwide representing all the major health disciplines, 32, in 18 different countries, are dedicated to nursing and midwifery services, education, research and policy. These 32 Centres have joined forces as the Global Network of WHO Collaborating Centres for Nursing and Midwifery Development ("Global Network". Since its inception in 1987, the Global Network has developed, organized and stabilized into a significant force in international nursing leadership. The Network’s far-reaching sphere of influence, its communications technology, and its ability to develop collaborative projects, enable it to have a significant impact on the health of the people of the world. The majority of Collaborating Centres have a strong research base and are in a unique position to contribute to the evidence base of nursing research. This presentation will demonstrate the Global Network’s International Leadership ability to provide linkages for technology transfer, capacity building and sustainability of international nursing projects, with specific examples in Safe Motherhood, HIV/AIDS, Mental Health, Community Based Intervention and Policy.
