Seminar

Chronic Diseases, Primary Care and Health Systems Performance

Date: 06 Dec 2011 to 08 Dec 2011

Time: 2:00 PM

Location: Salvador, Brazil

The purpose of this seminar is to assess health system performance in Latin American and Caribbean countries in the areas of primary health care and chronic disease management and prevention. Specifically, the seminar seeks to:

  1. Share recent studies to create a space for discussion that results in improved public policies in primary health care and management and prevention of chronic diseases.
  2. Analyze health system performance in the methodological framework of ambulatory care sensitive (ACS) hospitalizations.
  3. Verify how ACS hospitalizations data can be used to apply health care system performance monitoring and evaluation mechanisms.
  4. Define alternatives to strengthen programs, interventions, and primary health care networks.

The activities and results from this seminar will contribute to the design of a regional agenda focused on practice- and evidence-based health policy-making with an emphasis on primary health care and the management and prevention of chronic diseases.
