Health Information meets Health Informatics



The WHO-FIC network is an international collaboration that aims to promote the appropriate selection of classifications in the range of settings in the health field across the world. The primary mandate of the Collaborating Centres for the WHO Family of International Classifications (WHO-FIC) is to support and promote the development and use of WHO classifications, such as ICD (the International Classification of Diseases) and ICF (the International Classification of Functioning and Disability) in support of health and health services.


The WHO-FIC Collaborating Centre's Annual Meeting sessions provide the framework for intensive face-to-face meetings of each of the WHO-FIC committees and reference groups; a conference component, which provides the opportunity to share experiences related to the conference theme; and for the WHO-FIC Network Advisory Council to meet to review progress in relation to the strategic work plan of the WHO-FIC network and plan for the future

(participation is by invitation only)





WHOFIC 2019 is hosted by the Calgary WHO Collaborating Centre and will be held at The Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity

in Banff, Alberta, Canada. 

The closest international airport to Banff is the Calgary International Airport (YYC).

The best ways to get from the airport to Banff will be to take the Banff Airporter Shuttle that runs regularly both to and from Banff, 

or to rent a vehicle from one of the many car rental companies available at the Calgary International Airport & drive (note this also requires a park pass to be purchased upon entry to Banff National Park).
