A National Node is an organizational entity, often linked to a national institution or governmental unit that functions as a national liaison and brings together relevant national stakeholders in the country in a systematic way. The relevant stakeholders may include, for example, the national statistical office, the national public health institutes, representatives from ministries of health, research and/or science, and others. In addition, the National Nodes may function as a discussion and advisory forum in matters of health data and information both for national or international matters. 

Information regarding whether or not a country has a National Node established in the PHIRI network, is available on the main page of each country, which is reachable through the map below.
