The World Health Organization Collaborating Centre for HIV Strategic Information is a unique center which brings together an interdisciplinary group of scientists and policymakers and institutions of excellence in HIV surveillance from all over the world. The Center's mission is to contribute to increasing capacities in the implementation of efficient, sustainable and context-specific HIV surveillance and monitoring and evaluation systems which enable evidence-based development of HIV prevention, care, and treatment. Sharing knowledge and building research capacities are the key components of Centre’s work. Since the Centre establishment in 2003, more than 2500 participants from exactly 100 countries have been trained in HIV surveillance and monitoring and evaluation. The Centre is based at the Andrija Stampar School of Public Health, University of Zagreb School of Medicine. Stjepan Oreskovic is the founder and director of the Center.
