The event, attended by more than 300 delegates including representatives of the health ministries of Uruguay, Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina, was organised by the Pan-American Health Organisation, the Alliance of Mutual Societies of the Americas, the Latin American Social Security Organisation and the ISALUD University. The aim was to analyse, debate and set out proposals in connection with the contents of the 2010 World Health Report recently published by the WHO.

Dr. Ricardo López, a member of the Global Council of the International Health Cooperatives Organisation (IHCO) and chairman of FAESS (the Argentinian Federation of Social Health Organisations) spoke at the seminar to set out the vision of health cooperatives with regard to such vital issues as the health economy, the funding of health care systems and the expansion of the social safety net.

A number of the presentations can be viewed on the ISALUD Foundation University web.
