WHO Collaborating Centre for Campylobacter

Our WHO Collaborating Centre supports the World Health Organization with expertise on food safety and antimicrobial resistance

The work of the WHO-CC covers Campylobacter jejuni and C. coli as causes of diarrhoea in humans and the sequelae of the infection (e.g. Guillain Barre syndrome, reactive arthritis), and C. fetus, the species that can cause severe invasive infections in humans. The WHO-CC also supports WHO in the control of antimicrobial resistance, in particular from the One Health perspective.

If you need any advice or assistance on Campylobacter diagnostics or research, contact us: Professor Jaap A. Wagenaar. Telephone: +31 30 253 4376.
