: The Making of a Centre
Building up a research centre involves more than producing knowledge alone. 
It is necessary to draw up what and how it will be developed, which demands a collaborative and interdisciplinary work. That's what our researchers did during the Centre's Work Week in São Paulo, where the future guidelines for Mecila's Reserch Programme were defined. In this new video, our researchers share some of their expectations and plans for Mecila's next steps.

: Health Inequalities Dossier | Novos Estudos Cebrap
Novos Estudos Cebrap latest dossier focuses on accountability politics that ensure the reduction of health inequalities within increasingly complex pluralistic health systems.

Brazil and Mozambique are the places where these experiences of promotion of health equity are presented. But far from just bringing case studies, the dossier also intends to identify what can be learned about effective strategies that could support further actions in other unequal societies.
