Ignoring research evidence is harmful to individuals and populations, and wastes resources” (Mexico Statement on Health Research, 2004:1). WHO is a central player in formulating and promoting EBPs. As a means of facilitating evidence-based policy making, the world body has established the Health Evidence Network, whose function is to provide “answers to policy questions in the form of evidence-based reports and summaries” (Health Evidence Network, 2006). , 2004).

In this sense, political context at a relatively low bureaucratic level impeded an effective response to the evaluation of the PHC programs.
