|PAHO/WHO Technical Cooperation among Countries|
Technical Cooperation among Countries (TCC) is essentially a process whereby two or more countries work together to develop individual or collective capacity through cooperative exchanges of knowledge, skills, resources, and technologies. Ideally, TCC activities should be initiated, organized, and managed by the countries themselves, under the direction of the respective governments and with the participation of public and private institutions and organizations (UNDP 1998).
The mission of TCC is to contribute to capacity development in one or more countries, to strengthen relations between them, and to increase the exchange, generation, dissemination, and use of scientific and technical knowledge. This is in addition to training the countries' human resources and strengthening their institutions.
