The American University of Beirut (AUB) – Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS), Graduate Public Health Program is delighted and proud to announce that the World Health Organization (WHO) has​ re-designated its Knowledge to Policy (K2P) Center as a WHO Collaborating Center for Evidence-Informed Policy and Practice for another four-year term. The re-designation stands as a recognition of K2P’s leadership and dedication to shape and impact health and social policies and actions by providing context-specific solutions to complex policy issues, convening citizen panels and stakeholder dialogues, and building capacity for supporting-evidence informed policymaking in Lebanon, the Eastern Mediterranean region, and globally.

K2P Center is the first and only WHO Collaborating Center for Evidence-Informed Policy and Practice in Lebanon and the region, and the second of its kind globally after McMaster Forum in Canada. Since its first designation as a WHO Collaborating Center in 2015, K2P Center has undergone major transformations as part of ongoing efforts to support the use of evidence in policy and practice.
