GARD Brazil activities

Expanding GARD-PAL Project in Brazil

Description: The GARD-PAL Demonstration Project originally implemented in only one town (named Ribeirão das Neves) was expanded to two other neighbouring towns (so called, Santa Luzia and Ibirité). There are plans to print and distribute the new pocket guide for the project to this new area comprising 700,000 inhabitants. The first meeting on continued medical education on PAL-GARD strategy was scheduled and will be held by the end of March, 2011.
