The World Health Organization Collaborating Centre on Surveillance of Cardiovascular Diseases was approved by the Pan American Health Organization in Washington, DC, USA and the Non-Communicable Diseases Division of World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland in May 1995.

The Centre is supported by the Surveillance Division, Centre for Chronic Disease Prevention and Control, Public Health Agency of Canada. Collaborating organizations include the Non-Communicable Diseases Division and the Vital Statistics Division of the Pan American Health Organization, the InterAmerican Heart Foundation, and the World Heart Federation (formerly the International Society and Federation of Cardiology).

We are also pleased to collaborate with many colleagues around the world. In time, we would like to present a list of all those who have contributed data or assisted in other ways in the maintenance of the database.
