Evidence-informed country-level policy-making (2) EVIPNet

HIFA Quotation: 
However, at least in the Americas, this initiative is not progressing nor it is being extended.  Honduras is one of the several countries that is not part of the initiative.  It seems that one of the reasons that the initiative is not thriving is lack of a driving force from the MOH, its main user.  Here is a link to an opinion paper published in Revista Medica Hondureña, where we comment how EVIPNet could be a very effective option before the necessity to translate scientific researtch into action in Central America: http://www.bvs.hn/RMH/pdf/2013/pdf/Vol81-2-4-2013-15.pdf
