In order to ensure that maximum number of results are available for the benefit of the society, a dissemination strategy has been designed.

Dissemination strategies:

  • Round tables in Colombia and Brazil to bring together researchers and a variety of local and national interest groups (policy makers, managers, and civil society organisation).
  • Building networks of key contacts among relevant organisations (academic, governmental, nongovernmental, civil society, including users’ organisations etc.) in Colombia and Brazil and other Latin American countries and international agencies such the PAHO, World Bank, WHO, etc, and coordinating with already established networks.
  • Meetings and workshops (with brief summary reports) in order to disseminate the key findings and policy recommendations to local and national interest groups.
  • Participation in regional and/or international congresses concerned with health sector organisation and policy, in order to disseminate both methods and findings for comparative research.
  • Publication of short reports and articles research for dissemination of the results among the academic communities.
  • Publication of a book, with the main findings of country case studies, as well as the analytical framework and tools generated to analyse health care organisations and access to health care. 
  • Policy guidelines will be produced to ensure that results inform policy making. These guidelines will include strategies on: policy advocacy, involvement of key social actors, use of evidence.
