The Network is composed of the WHO Western Pacific Regional Office and 20 member institutions. Collectively, they operate the Network to fulfill the agreed mission and objectives. With each institution of the Network being designated as a WHO collaborating centre, or recognized as a long-term technical partner of WHO, there is an inherent credibility to the personnel providing technical assistance and an assurance of best practice in line with WHO directives.
Management of the Network is the responsibility of the WHO Western Pacific Regional Office, mainly through its HIV/AIDS/STI (HSI) team within the Division of Combating Communicable Diseases (DCC), based in Manila, Philippines. The Albion Street Centre (ASC), WHO Collaborating Centre for Capacity Building and Health Care Worker Training in HIV/AIDS Care, Treatment and Support in Sydney, Australia, is a Network member and supports the HSI team by acting as key facilitator for the Network.
