The School of Public Health of Mexico (ESPM), founded in 1922, has been housed by the INSP since 1987. In accordance with its mission, the INSP relentlessly strives to enhance academic opportunities and to strengthen its role in Mexico in order to improve population health promotion and social equity, with a specific focus on vulnerable social groups. In order to achieve this goal, the INSP collaborates with federal and state governments, national and international health organizations, community groups and alumni. The INSP’s integration of education and research provides the synergy needed to strengthen and expand public health activities, increase the quality of teaching and research and improve public health practice in Mexico and Latin America.
