The delegate of Brazil to the 52nd Directing Council of the Pan American Health Organization stressed the importance of strengthening alert-and-response capacity to countries within the framework of the International Health Regulations.

He also pointed out the need to reduce the burden of neglected and noncommunicable diseases on poor populations.

“We need to keep health on the post-2015 health agenda, guaranteeing universal coverage and access to health services,” he noted.
