Instituto Nacional de Salud Pública (INSP)
The mission of the National Institute of Public Health of Mexico (INSP) is to contribute to social equity and the full realization of the right to health protection through the generation and dissemination of knowledge, state-of-the-art training of human resources, and innovation in multidisciplinary research in order to develop evidence-based public policies. The School of Public Health of Mexico (ESPM) was founded in 1922, and has been housed by the INSP since 1987. Through the ESPM, our institute became the first foreign institution to be accredited by the U.S. Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) in 2006. As a leader in integral public health research and teaching in Latin America, the INSP strives to generate precise and current reference knowledge for the formulation, implementation and evaluation of health research policy on national and regional levels.
Currently, the INSP is one of the largest public health institutions in the developing world and is the foremost institution in teaching, research and service to improve public health in Mexico and Latin America. The Teaching, research and services provided by the INSP reflect the cultural, social and economic realities of Mexico, a developing, middle-income country. These activities target health professionals who work in Mexico and Latin America, the United States and, increasingly, worldwide. The INSP therefore fulfills a critical need within the public health community in Latin America and around the world.
