GONZALEZ-BLOCK, Miguel A  y  CONSEJO DIRECTIVO DEL IMSP et al. Mesoamerican Public Health Institute: Technical support and capacity strengthening arm of the Mesoamerican Public Health System. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2011, vol.53, suppl.3, pp.s358-s367. ISSN 0036-3634.

OBJECTIVE: The Mesoamerican Public Health Institute (IMSP) was constituted in 2009 as the technical organ of the Mesoamerican Public Health System (SMSP) and the Virtual Network of Academic Institutions. Health system capacity strengthening needs and preliminary training results were assessed in the first phase. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The SMSP Master Plans were content-analyzed for each priority and members of the Malaria and Dengue Working Group were surveyed. RESULTS: The training needs required for each SMSP priority area were identified and knowledge management needs for malaria and dengue analyzed. Competencies were mapped across strategic, tactical and operative personnel that will be requiring them. IMSP trained in its first year 91 persons in eight countries. CONCLUSIONS: IMSP is responding to the Mesoamerican region's public health needs.
