Cooperative Service for Accessing Documents


  • Dear users,

    Since last June the SCAD is out of service and unfortunately we do not have a deadline for reactivation of the service.

    We are aware of the inconvenience that this causes for access to health information for users in Latin America and the Caribbean and we are mobilized and reviewing the processes and procedures that regulate and operationalize the SCAD with the support from PAHO Legal Office.

    The SCAD team is available to guide users to use other options of interlibrary loan service.

    We appreciate the understanding of users and the network,
