WHO re-designates EMRI as a Collaborating Center
Due to the contributions made by EMRI during its previous periods of designation as a WHO Collaborating Center for Research and Education on Management of Osteoporosis and Diabetes, World Health Organization has re-designated this institute for a further period of four years until 2024.
As a collaborating center, the EMRI will support WHO in its work towards reduction and early screening of diabetes, osteoporosis and their complications, through training and capacity building, and will support WHO to monitor and evaluate Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through a systematic effort on data collecting, processing and developing analytical models.
Since its first designation in 2007, EMRI has worked extensively for Research and Education on Management of Osteoporosis and Diabetes and is committed to find the most effective ways to improve patient care and to share that information with the international healthcare communities.
WHO Collaborating Centers are part of an inter-institutional network designed to strengthen country resources in terms of information, services, research, and training in support of national health development.
Institutions designated as WHO Collaborating Centers are expected to implement the agreed work plan in a timely manner and to the highest possible standards of quality, and must also comply with the Terms and Conditions for WHO Collaborating Centers.
