A qualitative analysis of the functioning of PADRIS is carried out focusing in the meaning of PADRIS and its relationship with the sanitary ecosystem. It also analyzes the relationship between the program and the projects it develops, the operation of the data value chain and the relationship between PADRIS and its resources. Finally, a compilation of the main conclusions and development proposals is prepared.

To carry out this qualitative analysis, focus groups and individual interviews are carried out with different key agents in the healthcare ecosystem in which the PADRIS program is part. Specifically, it analyzes the perceptions, assessments, and knowledge of the PADRIS target entities, the members of the PADRIS Operational Committee, the Advisory Board, the PADRIS Supervisory Committee and the PADRIS team.
