GARCIA-MOSTAJO, Jorge A et al. The development of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines in Peru for public healthcare facilities. Acta méd. Peru [online]. 2017, vol.34, n.3, pp.203-207. ISSN 1728-5917.

There has been a regulation for generating clinical practice guidelines in Peru since 2005 (NT N° 027-MINSA/DGSP-V.01), which was issued by the Ministry of Health. However, its use has had little emphasis in the methodological quality of such guidelines, and a narrative style was preferred. Some isolated efforts aiming to improve the quality of such guidelines have taken place, especially with respect to have such documents produced based on evidence. Now we have a new regulation (NT N° 302-2015/MINSA), which places more emphasis in this requirement; and some institutions are already working in such way, in order to comply with international standards and be able to generate a positive impact in our healthcare system through the adequate development of clinical practice guidelines in our country
