Biography/History

The Pan American Network of Nursing and Midwifery Collaborating Centers (PANMCC, pronounced “PAN-mack”) is composed of the PAHO/WHO Collaborating Centers for Nursing Human Resources Development and Patient Safety.

Its 19 collaborating centers, based in the Americas, Canada and the Caribbean, seek to promote a more regular dialogue with each other. According its charter: “The PANMCC network will be recognized as a reflection of the diversity of nurses and midwives in the region to promote the contributions of nursing and midwifery. PANMCC will serve as a resource for knowledge exchange, capacity building, and health systems development in order to further ‘Health for All’ through the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals.”

During 2009-2011, PANMCC recognized and conducted an Oral History Project to shed light on the founding and development of the organization as well as its contributions to nursing and midwifery.
