The Director of General Services of El Salvador’s Ministry of Health, Dr. Matías H. Villatoro Reyes, advocated for qualified human resources “where the population most needs them” as a necessary precondition for universal health coverage.

During consideration of a draft resolution that calls for increasing the number of trained health personnel in primary health care services, Villatoro Reyes noted that in his country human resources development was the strategic underpinning of health care reform. His remarks came during the 52nd Directing Council of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO).
