On March the 5TH 2018 the World Federation of Public Health Associations (WFPHA) has had acknowledge about the letter that SESPAS (Sociedad Española de Salud Pública y Gestión Sanitaria) affiliated to WFPHA has remitted to you regarding the Assessment Council of Health. We agree with the two points raised by SESPAS in their letter and support them.

Any public policy on health needs a public health vision in order to be comprehensive and effective. The values and principles of public health are inherent to any action aimed at improving the health of the population as shown by the history and performance of the World Health Organization (WHO) and other global health related organizations.

We kindly ask you to reconsider the possibility of nominating a reference expert the field of public health.

Equity is among the principles of public health this is why we also would be grateful if you consider the gender issue suggested by SESPAS. We think that you as Minister not of Health, Social Services and Equity are in an unbeatable position to make decisions that have an impact on the population and promote social changes towards gender equality.
