Collaboration with the World Health Organization

Ahpra is a designated World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Centre for Health Workforce Regulation.

There are over 800 institutions in more than 80 Member States working with the WHO on areas ranging from non-communicable and communicable diseases, to mental health, health technologies and building the health workforce of the future. We work in partnership with the WHO to promote best practice in health workforce regulation and promote access to quality health care.
