Background: In Chile, 80 diseases were included in a health care system called Health Care Guarantees (GES) and clinical guidelines were elaborated for their management. Aim: To assess the scientific background of guidelines and if they were based on research financed by the Chilean National Commission for Science and Technology. Material and Methods: The references of the 82 guidelines developed for 80 diseases were reviewed, registering their number, authors, country of origin and funding source. Results: The guidelines had a total of 6,604 references. Of these, only 185 were Chilean (2.8%) and five (0.08%) originated from research financed by the National Commission for Science and Technology. Conclusions: The contribution of research funded by national agencies to the formulation of clinical guidelines is minimal.
