    • IT can be the tool to promote the quantic jump to offer better health for all
    • Today the recommendation from all big donors and HMN/WHO is to strengthen countries health systems by providing local ownership of an integrated eHealth Architecture, moving away from vertical applications
    • SIGA Sa úde is a proof of concept of this recommendation and can be used in other countries, specially for MDG4 and 5 goals
