WHO Collaborating Centre for International Child & Adolescent Health Policy

In October 2013 the World Health Organisation (WHO) designated the University of St Andrews School of Medicine as its Collaborating Centre for International Child and Adolescent Health Policy (CC).

This prestigious appointment endorses the international research and policy-influencing work of the School’s leading researchers in the field of population and behavioural health sciences – Professors Candace Currie, Peter Donnelly and Gerald Humphris.

The centre has several strands of work related to social determinants of health and prevention of health inequalities, reduction of youth violence and prevention of risk behaviours such as drug use. St Andrews is the only WHO CC in Europe focussing on how society and culture impact the health and well-being of children and adolescents. The ultimate aim is to translate and communicate research findings to inform policy aimed at improving young people’s health and well-being.
