The ministerial meeting gathered healthcare administrators and practitioners from Latin America, in addition to experts from other continents. They discussed the impact of stroke on the region, the organization of services and healthcare networks, successful models, challenges and potential solutions. We finished it with the expectation that this meeting will have a great impact on regional public healthcare policies, making them a reference for the world.
