The INSP collaborates with a range of educational institutions and health organizations to develop training programs and promote capacity-building in public health. In addition to its work with individual institutions, the INSP also works with networks specifically created to build capacity and develop national and international workforce capabilities. Two such networks are described below.

State Centers for Health Systems Development (CEDESS)

The INSP developed and operates the CEDESS, which act as coordinating bodies between the INSP and funding agencies, academics, and health institutions. The strategic objectives of the CEDESS are to strengthen leadership and management of state health systems, improve health, and ensure dignified treatment and financial protection for the population. The CEDESS are gradually implemented in high-priority states through grants and training for community organizations, which are then empowered to operate research, teaching, training and technical assistance programs following INSP quality standards. The CEDESS allow the INSP to expand coverage for health systems research, teaching, and training services in coordination with academic institutions and state authorities. Currently, CEDESS are operating in the states of Mexico and Oaxaca with an intensive continuing education program to build capacity. Additional centers will be established in other states in the future.

Mesoamerican Institute of Public Health (IMSP)

The IMSP is a regional capacity-building initiative under the Mesoamerican Public Health System (SMSP). The IMSP helps strengthen national health systems through the development and expansion of regional strengths in public health systems in collaboration with academic institutions and regional ministries of health, with the support of the SSA and the financial backing of the Carlos Slim Health Institute. The IMSP is made up of the INSP, the University of Costa Rica, the Center for Health Research and Studies of the National Autonomous University of Nicaragua, the University of El Salvador, the Gorgas Memorial Institute for Health Studies of the Republic of Panama, the Faculty of Medical Sciences of the University of San Carlos of Guatemala, the College of the Southern Border of Mexico, the Integration and Development Project of Mesoamerica, and the Executive Secretariat of the Council of Ministers of Health of Central American.

The IMSP’s chief objectives are to contribute to the governance of the SMSP; to provide technical support for the development of the Mesoamerican health agenda; to strengthen the technical capacity of the regional health programs that make up the SMSP; and to support the integration of regional health programs into national health programs.

To fulfill these objectives, the IMSP implements three strategic Mesoamerican programs:

  1. Training and continuing education for public health professionals
  2. Institutional strengthening and development
  3. Technical support and knowledge management
