The WHO Family of International Classifications includes: the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD), the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF), and the International Classification of Health Interventions (ICHI).

The WHO-FIC Network currently consists of 34 Collaborating Centres, five Academic research Collaborating Centres, eight nongovernmental organizations (in official relations with WHO), and technical liaisons.

This year, the WHO-FIC meeting will be held in Kigali, Rwanda from 14th to 18th October 2024 under the theme, “From coded data to delivery”. It will be hosted by the University of Rwanda’s Centre of Excellence in Biomedical Engineering and e-Health (CEBE) in collaboration with Rwanda’s Ministry of Health. CEBE serves on behalf of the Ministry of Health as the national reference Center and provides essential technical support for the implementation and maintenance of national health data standards.
