The term health divestment is used with a wide range of meanings, although the most commonly used definition is the one proposed by Elsaugh: “divestment is the process of withdrawing (partially or completely) funding from certain practices, procedures and/or or existing technologies that are considered of low or no value in relation to their cost and, therefore, do not represent an efficient allocation of resources”2. It is important to highlight some key elements of this definition.
