The National Collaborating Centre for Infectious Diseases (NCCID) is one of six centres funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada.  The six centres form a network across Canada, each hosted by a different institution and focusing on a different topic in public health.

Our primary functions are:

  • Knowledge synthesis, translation and exchange to incorporate evidence from research and experience into policy and practice
  • Identification of knowledge gaps in research and practice
  • Network development among the NCCs and other existing networks and organizations to support the use of evidence in decision –making and the various governance structures for public health.
