Pan-Amazonian Network of Science, Technology and Innovation in Health

Atibaia, May 9th, 2007

Laís Costa –


Globalization, Health and Sustainable Development

Health Sector  human development, equity and social justice

Unexplored potential of health sector to achieve development goals.

Health industry, research, market, services, education  relevant tool for the regional integration and development

Technologic and economic importance: innovation, job, profit

Brazilian & The International Agenda

Amazon and strategic development

  • Region of global interest, low HDI - poor access to basic services;
  • One of the richest biodiversity - better competitiveness;
  • Forest’s potential - social inclusion, industrial development;
  • Urgent needs to develop environmental management;
  • Common issues & cooperative work
  • Improvement of S&T capacity - mutual effort work;
  • Empowerment of population - guarantee of resources’ sustainable use;

Amazon - Challenges

  • To establish the Amazon’s importance in a global set;
  • To implement public policies to develop science, technology, biotechnology and innovation skills;
  • To preserve biodiversity stimulating research;
  • Foster civil society’s participation to definition priorities and policies evaluation implementation;
  • To approach strategically the health sector in Amazon for the national and South American development;
  • To establish a natural resources management.

Pan-Amazonian Network of ST&I/H

The need to address regional matters locally

  • There's a recognition that challenges concerning to sustainable development of Amazon, and building science, technology and innovation in health research skills is no longer considered a domestic one, but a regional, or better, a global, one.
  • There's a recognition of the mutual benefit of addressing the challenge in collaboration with other Amazonian countries, specifically, and other countries and development agencies and initiatives.

Amazon and Fiocruz:

Amazon has been highlighted as a strategic basis for developing knowledge and innovation which concerns not only to Brazil, but either for all South America and other countries.

Pan-amazonian Network of Science, Technology & Innovation in Health






Amazon Agreement

  • A technical-scientific cooperation among Amazon institutes to develop common researches and programs to know the real scenario on Amazon health, their epidemiologic reality and develop, as well as, to implement and to evaluate health, innovation and S&T policies.
  • Common problems and challenges regional strategies.
  • Importance of strengthening scientific research.
  • Necessity of installing the Pan-Amazonian Network of ST&IH.

Health Frontiers and the Brazil three times program

Technical Relevance

It promotes analysis of the dynamics of the Brazilian health sector and build scenarios, parameters and index.

Political relevance

It is a “Brazil three times program” module; it is a tool to subsidize decision making within the State’s development policy.

Brazil 3 times Program

Brazil’s strategic plan which is not a government policy but a State’s one. It contemplates strategies until the year of 2022.


Pan-Amazonian Network of ST&I/H


1. To implement a ST&H/I International Cooperative Network with members of the Amazon Pact and Amazon agreement in ST&I/H;

2. To stablish an Strategic Agenda for developing ST&IH in the region (sustainable development, globalization and citizenship).

Pan-Amazonian Network of ST&I/H

 Executive Committee Structure:

    • Fiocruz, OTCA, PAHO, UNAMAZ, the Andean Health Organism and the Ministry of Health of Brazil (Mercosul)

 Achieved Results :

  • I International meeting Pro- Pan-Amazonian network of S,T&I/H – Nov/2006:
  • Work Plan to its installation;
  • Establishment of priorities.

Pan-Amazonian Network of ST&I/H

Leads to empowerment through:

  • Coordination of investment;
  • Rationalization of research;
  • Connection of researchers to obtain a concrete application and the benefits of their uses;
  • Improvement of civil society’s participation;
  • Endogenous knowledge and economic impact;
  • Transparency (governance and accountability).

Pan-Amazonian Network of ST&I/H

Expectations: sustainable development, tackling inequalities, improve HDI, strengthen participation of civil society, developing indigenous knowledge and research skills; to improve sustainable use of natural resources (better off relation of sustainable exploration which foresees maintaining fresh water, forests, biodiversity and others).

The main issue is diminishing vulnerability of poor people and of regional development.
