The eHealth Strategy and Plan of Action for the Americas promotes knowledge and information sharing among member states and stakeholders. To that end, the Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) launches the eHealth Seminar Series on Friday, October 5, 2012.

The seminars will discuss different themes of relevance and key players working on eHealth globally to ensure knowledge sharing among people and institutions and convergence in the implementation of eHealth National Strategies and plans of action, and also to inform public health stakeholders and other decision makers in the health sector, to better take part in the debate.
