Knowledge and information sharing among PAHO member states and stakeholders is one of the key elements of PAHO's eHealth Strategy. The seminar series "eHealth in the Americas" aims at contributing to the debate by featuring different themes of relevance and key players working on eHealth globally. It promotes knowledge sharing among people and institutions as well as convergence in the implementation of eHealth National Strategies and plans of action.
