What: Launch of the comprehensive Essential Public Health Functions training strategy for health systems strengthening
When: Friday, 22 April 2022 - 10:00 a.m (EDT)
As part of the webinar series on the Essential Public Health Functions (EPHF) organized by PAHO, this first webinar of the year 2022 (#7 of the series) aims to introduce the training strategies that PAHO will develop to strengthen the institutional capacities of countries, as well as to present the launch of the renewed conceptual framework document of the Essential Public Health Functions (EPHF) in Portuguese, which is added to the versions already available in Spanish and English.
The renewed EPHF is part of the stewardship functions of health authorities to strengthen and transform health systems towards universal health. This proposal responds to the public health challenges in our region and is framed by PAHO's regional strategy of universal access to health and universal health coverage as well as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
