The content of Health in the Americas closely follows the eight lines of action agreed upon by the ministers of health and described in the Health Agenda for the Americas, 2008-2017 and, therefore, provides information that is unquestionably useful for documenting progress and challenges involved in implementing the Agenda. This content is complemented with Chapter 1, which offers a historical account of the advances in public health in the Region, in whose achievement the Pan American Health Organization has actively participated during its 110 years of providing technical cooperation to the countries of the Americas.
