Guanais, Frederico C.
With the aim of contributing to the design of evidence-based public health policies in Latin America and the Caribbean and giving special consideration to patient or health service user perspectives, between 2012 and 2014 the Inter-American Development Bank carried out the Primary Care Access, Experience and Coordination Survey in Latin America and the Caribbean, in adult populations in Colombia, Mexico, Brazil, El Salvador, Panama and Jamaica. More detail about the motivations, conceptual framework, and detailed methodology of the survey can be found the publication “Desde el paciente: Experiencias de la atención primaria de salud en América Latina y el Caribe” (in Spanish). Primary Healthcare Access, Experience, and Coordination in Latin America and the Caribbean is a dataset of 9,012 observations, that merges the three waves of data collection in the survey, conducted between 2012 and 2014 in: Colombia and Mexico; Brazil and El Salvador; and Panama and Jamaica.
