Instituto Nacional de Salud Pública



Founded in March1922, the School of Public Health of Mexico (ESPM)/Instituto Nacional de Salud Pública (INSP), is a centennial public health institution in Latin America (the oldest one) and offers 28 graduate degree programs (including Masters of Public Health, Masters of Health Science and doctorate degrees) at its campuses in Cuernavaca (Morelos), Tapachula (Chiapas) and Mexico City.

ESPM students are able to take advantage of comprehensive fieldwork opportunities through the INSP's close relationships with communities and health institutions across Mexico. The INSP's research centers offer multiple training and research opportunities in the basic areas of public health as well as infectious disease, maternal health, nutrition and health economics, among others.

The ESPM/ INSP is a leader in fostering community participation and translating research for evidence-based decision-making to promote population health at the local, regional and national levels.

In its 100 years, ESPM has trained more than 18,000 students in the public health area. INSP is committed to developing public health to guide -- with the most pertinent information -- the development of public policies that address the urgent health needs in our country.
