The purpose of the LAC pre-conference events is twofold: on the one hand, to generate a space for local exchange on the most relevant experiences and transformative visions, which will fuel a necessary debate on health systems. Secondly, to support the selected papers for this pre-conference in the presentation of their summaries at the Fifth Symposium of the Global Health System to be held in Liverpool.
With the purpose of bringing together researchers and policymakers in health of Latin America and the Caribbean working on issues related to health systems in the region, this pre-conference in Colombia aims to:
- Promote the exchange of experiences in a meeting of researchers and policymakers around interdisciplinary discussion tables.
- Stimulate the presentation of works by Latin American and Caribbean authors in the Open Call of the Global Symposium in March 2018.
- Strengthen the Latin American and Caribbean presence of studies on health systems and policies in the Symposium.
