The event also has members of the EVIPNet Americas support and resource team (knowledge translation platform) and recipients of the Teasdale Corti and the Global Health Leadership Awards.

PAHO’s support was possible thanks to the gracious support of the Spanish Agency for International Development and Cooperation that provided funds to support the implementation of activities relevant to PAHO’s Policy on Research for Health.
