The latent threat of future pandemics caused by respiratory viruses with epidemic and pandemic potential is one of the problems facing public health. It is not enough to identify the lessons learned, but it is essential to reflect on how to learn from previous epidemics and pandemics; how to build the resilience of health systems and services; how to sustain the capacities, achievements and developments achieved; and, of course, how to take advantage of these experiences to ensure the improvement in the capacity of prevention, preparation, response and control in future events. This report compiles the exchange of experiences that serve as a reference to strengthen national health systems in the Region of the Americas and can guide technical cooperation activities in future pandemics. The face-to-face meeting was held in Buenos Aires (Argentina) between August 16 and 19, 2022, attended by approximately 120 people.
