The Peruvian health ministry is planning to set up a healthcare protection agency to oversee the quality of care in key areas of the country's health reform programme. Bolivia is said to share Peru's interest in the initiative, which will be implemented at national level through its existing network of community healthcare agents. The plans were announced following the recent signing by Peruvian health minister Fernando Carbone of a three-year co-operation agreement with the US International Development Agency, providing financial support to the country's reformed national insurance scheme, the Seguro Integral.
