There is a broad range of national health policy instruments currently being employed in the Americas ; their diversity stems from different national political and policy processes in the countries of the Region. This section features official documents supporting national health priorities, goals, and targets; which include: national health policies, strategic health plans, and national consensus agreements on health, among others. As new official health policy documents become available, they will be added to this section. Those engaged in the design, analysis or implementation of health policies will find the material in this section a valuable source of information.

It postulates that such systems are necessary to tackle the “unfinished health agenda” in the Americas .
