8th Regional Congress on Health Sciences Information (CRICS 8)

16-19 September 2008 - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Website: http://www.crics8.org/php/index.php?lang=en

The Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (FIOCRUZ) and the Latin American and
Caribbean Center on Health Sciences Information (BIREME/PAHO/WHO)

The main theme of the CRICS8 – Scientific information and knowledge
for innovation in health, will approach the critical function the
information and the scientific knowledge play in the processes of
generation, adoption, and adaptation of innovations in the social and
economic development, particularly in health systems and services.

The information and knowledge sources and flows that are produced and
operated by means of products, services, and events of information and
communication comprise the fabric that unites, sustains and
systematically innovates the relationships, policies, programs and
practices of the instances of promotion, research, technology,
industry and the health systems and services in favor of the social
inclusion and of the equity.
