[Way Forward]: Moving forward, ACHR/CAIS must consistently endeavor to both adapt to current needs and anticipate future challenges, such as taking into account the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations, and ensuring that all populations, specifically vulnerable ones, are represented. Internal and external collaborations and partnerships should be capitalized upon to streamline resources and prevent overlap and waste. The ACHR/CAIS has participated in the discussions leading to a monitoring and evaluation strategy for The Policy, including the development of scorecards to assess progress in Member States and surveys to assess implementation in the Pan American Sanitary Bureau (PASB) with managers; the latter resulted in specific recommendations, published in 2014 and 2017. Equipped with The Policy and its promotion through the efforts of ACHR/CAIS and the engagement of the Organization’s leaders, PAHO is well positioned to not only continue improving health in the Americas, but also to make sustainable, multi-sectorial impacts at the local, national, and regional levels.
