The Argentine Collaborating Centre (CACE) for WHO-FIC was effectively designated in March 2015. In recent years, CACE has continuously and actively promoted the use of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) in Argentina and broadly in Latin American Region, with the support and coordination of PAHO/WHO. The outcome of these efforts and activities has proven to be very important to the authorities and staff that perform functions at Bureaus of Health Statistics throughout the region. This poster briefly describes the work performed by CACE and its main results.
