Portugal Health by Numbers Nº 1

The present issue of the Journal "Health by Numbers" [Saúde em Números], can be said to represent Series II of the edition the Portuguese Ministry of Health' Directorate-General of Health (DGS) formerly published until April 2000, under the direction of Amélia Leitão e Marinho Falcão.

It is known that the production of knowledge is the essence for the New Public Health. After all this is the Age of Knowledge.

Based on the principles of resposability and transparency and in a perspective of accountability, management and dissemination of knowledge forcibly assume a strategic dimension in the context of the mission and values of the DGS.

Health by Numbers Portugal seeks to achieve these goals.
