A year and a half after announcing it, the Ministry of Health and the autonomous communities have appointed the committee of experts that will independently evaluate the management that the National Health System has made of the pandemic. These are four people, supported unanimously, who in turn will appoint the field evaluators, as explained by the minister of the field, Carolina Darias, in the press conference after the Interterritorial Health Council this Wednesday.
They are: Rosa Urbanos Garrido, expert in Health Economics, Professor of the Department of Applied Economics of the UCM and president of SESPAS; Fernando Rodríguez Artalejo, Professor of Preventive Medicine and Public Health at the UAM; Carmen Pérez Romero, president of the Health Economics Association and Xurxo Hervada Vidal, an expert in epidemiology and part of SERGAS.
The committee has not set a time horizon for work. “I ask that we let them work, they are the ones who will have to decide,” said Darias.
