What are our priorities?

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Global Collaborations Program works collaboratively on priority areas with the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Labour Organization (ILO), national ministries, and global partners in industry, labor, trade associations, professional organizations, and academia. The program focuses on these areas:

  • Reducing blood-borne pathogen infections in healthcare workers.
  • Reducing work-related respiratory health conditions globally.
  • Improving collaboration in occupational health and safety efforts through the Geolibrary, WHO Collaborating Centers, the ILO and other partners.
  • Reducing illnesses, injuries and deaths during international health and disaster emergencies.
