The EVIPNet team organized and completed its second deliberative dialogue that was coordinated by the Minister, Dr. Esperanza Martínez. Managers and decision makers in the areas of primary health care and chronic diseases, as well as regional health directors and investigators were convened. The base document used to deliberate was the “policy brief” (summary and compendium of policies) “The role of Primary Health Care in the integrated approach for the management of Chronic Noncommunicable Diseases” and the technical personnel of the ministry presented the options of policy up for deliberation. From PAHO, Dr. Enrique Vázquez participated on behalf of  the PAHO Representative and Dr. Antonieta Rojas de Arias, research focal point and EVIPnet Américas counterpart, providing technical support for the realization of the Dialogue. You can listen to the Minister in this video (in Spanish only).
