Within this context, the PAHO/WHO Leaders in International Health
Program Edmundo Granda Ugalde aims to contribute to the development of
the Health Agenda for the Americas 2008-2017 by strengthening
the capacity of countries in the region to understand, act upon and
positively influence the international determinants of health, to
promote their national interests, and to achieve intersectoral health
agreements in international environments, at all times guided by the
principle of greater global equity in health.
