pdf  PAHO's Policy on Research for Health (2.46 MB)

© PAHO 2010

The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) has adopted a new policy on research for health. This policy aims to ensure that PAHO remains true to being a knowledge-based organization, that strong and sustainable national health research systems are found in every country in the Americas, and that research evidence constitutes a cornerstone of all activities aimed at attaining the highest level of health and equity. To achieve these aims the Secretariat at the Pan American Sanitary Bureau, Member States and partners will need to work together to harness science, technology, innovation and broader knowledge.
