to implement a multicomponent intervention to reduce these gaps in the Julio Antonio Mella Polyclinic in the Guanabacoa municipality, to evaluate the intervention process, its effectiveness and the fidelity of its implementation.

The effectiveness of the intervention will be evaluated through a quasi-experimental study (before and after). The intervention will cover the aforementioned polyclinic, the ten baseline study clinics, and the population served by them. Two years after the start of implementation, a population survey will be applied again and the difference in the magnitude of the pre-post intervention population gaps will be estimated. In addition, the process will be monitored and the fidelity of the implementation of the intervention will be evaluated.
