According to the Bank’s website, the general objective of the Technical Cooperation (TC) is to contribute to improve the quality of care for dependent older adults, as well as the medical management of the situation of frailty and multimorbidity often associated with dependency. The specific objective is to disseminate knowledge on the care of dependent older adults through a web platform that integrates a knowledge base, training modules and software to support clinical decision making. There is no free and open access to a clinical decision support system (CDSS) in the region. Given the shortage of geriatric experts in the region for specialized consultations, this software has the potential to be disruptive, expanding the possibility of problem solving from the first level of care.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IADB
The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IIC is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
