In the last 5 years, over 30 guidelines have been developed, and for this year, the ministry of health has awarded some academic groups to develop a new set of CPG. The basis for the development of guidelines during the past years has been the national Methodological Guideline of the Minister of Health (MGG) . There is a need for a more powerful evaluation to identify gaps in the guideline development process in Colombia with the aim of design and promote actions for improvement and to obtain reliable and high quality products consistent with the goal proposed by the National government with this initiative.
