PAHO Research Promotion and Development

Welcome to PAHO Research Promotion and Development, the gateway to current information on research for health serving policy-makers, health-care providers, the general public and anyone interested in using research to advance public health, equity and development.

Our program focuses on the strengthening of research for health through the dissemination and translation of knowledge, the promotion of research governance, and the monitoring of ethics and standards within research practices.  Our research portal draws together information gathered from the region on these key areas of interest.
