dc.description.abstract[Introduction] The Secretariat of the Advisory Committee on Health Research (ACHR) convened the 39th Meeting of the Committee by request of the Director of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) in order to review the role of the Committee and discuss its direction, the importance of its continued operation, and its functioning. These topics were considered in light of a series of developments, notably the appointment of a new Secretary of the Committee. Since its creation in 1932, the ACHR has functioned under different arrangements and has made various contributions. Among other things, it has helped to formulate policies and strategies for cooperation on research within PAHO and has reviewed research activities in which the Organization has participated. For most of its existence the Committee met every two years, but during the last decade the meetings have been held annually. The Committee consists of 15 recognized scientists of the Region. This report summarizes the presentations and observations made during the 39th Meeting of the Advisory Committee on Health Research of PAHO/WHO, as well as the recommendations drawn up in the final session of the meeting.en_US
