CABEZAS SANCHEZ, César. The role of the State in health-related scientific research and data transparency. Rev. perú. med. exp. salud publica [online]. 2006, vol.23, n.4, pp.275-283. ISSN 1726-4634.

Health-related research is a necessary tool for the development of every country, and this research must be materialized by means of public policies directed towards achieving welfare for the community as a whole; so undoubtedly there is a great responsibility for the state in terms of promoting, developing and spreading health-related research, jointly working with other components of society and the academic sector, both nationally and internationally. This article reviews the regulations that establish the role of the Peruvian state on health-related research and data transparency, the development of management strategies for this area, and the most tangible achievements showing that health-related research promoted by the Peruvian Ministry of health through the National Institute of Health led to the implementation of public policies favoring the whole population, such as changes in therapy for malaria and universal immunization against hepatitis B.
