Since, in 1968, the first relevant agreement was signed by the Netherlands Government and the WHO, 1973 was a significant year for the IRC - it celebrated its fifth anniversary, together with the 60th anniversary of the parent Institute.

Not one but both parents of the celebrating IRC commemorated a special event in 1973: the WHO celebrated its 25th anniversary. During those 25 years of existence, many new and brilliant ideas led to a considerable number of activities, all directed to WHO's objective: "the attainment by all people of the highest possible level of health". One of those ideas was the establishment of systems of International Reference Centres in respect of a considerable number of public health issues, in some cases in cooperation with Collaborating Institutions.

The IRC for Community Water Supply (IRC/CWS) forms an example. At the occasion of the Centre's anniversary the present annual report deals in some detail with general background information and way of operation.
