Network for Education in International Health

The tropEd home institution is an entry point of the tropEd masters programme. It is the institution where you have your main registration. This institution delivers a tropEd accredited core course, allows credit accumulation and transfer from other tropEd member institutions under the ECTS, provides tutoring and guidance to students about the tropEd Masters programme, and delivers a Masters degree. In some cases, the home institution is also where you complete your Masters thesis, although in other cases you may complete this at a partner institution.

The legal status of tropEd network is an registered association in Germany. According to the association regulation, tropEd has three types of memberships: Institutional full members, collaborating institutions and individual members. To be a full member, an institution needs to offer at least one course or module to the tropEd Masters Programme and be recognised as an institution of higher education by a national authority. Other institutions of relevance to International Health, including those which may offer specific courses of interest to the network, but are not institutes of higher education, may join as collaborating institutions. Individuals who are active in and/or provide relevant contributions to the tropEd Network, may join the association as individual members.

A Brief History

The Instituto Nacional de Salud Pública (INSP), or National Institute of Public Health of Mexico, was created in 1987 as the result of a strategic initiative to consolidate public health research, graduate training and continuing education within Mexico’s Ministry of Health (SSA). The goal was to create a single institution that would train highly qualified public health practitioners and academicians and create an atmosphere that would promote collaboration in public health research and education.

Three existing institutions from the government health sector merged to create the INSP: the Mexican School of Public Health, the Population Health Research Center and the Infectious Disease Research Center. The merger combined the long teaching tradition of the Mexican School of Public Health (founded in 1922) with new research approaches in public health. The result is an institution with a multidisciplinary perspective that is able to study the population-based dimensions of health, disease and health/disease determinants, as well as the organized social response to disease prevention and health promotion. A fundamental premise for creating the INSP was that excellence in public health education could be achieved only in a context in which both faculty and students actively participated in cutting-edge research for improving the population’s health. The objective was to educate public health professionals and academicians while conducting high-quality research.

In 1995, the INSP was reorganized to further enhance and expand public health research and education. The Institute formed additional research centers and brought in leading academicians and public health practitioners. In addition, degree programs became linked directly to a research center, which promoted faculty participation in both teaching and research. The INSP created the position of the professor-researcher, requiring all experienced researchers to teach. The Faculty Colleges (collegiate bodies that focus on specific fields of study) were created to support and focus teaching programs. These colleges serve as the academic core for program development and provide forums for critical discussion and exchange of ideas among academicians. The reorganization has allowed the INSP to make major advances in integrating teaching and research, conducting multidisciplinary research, and developing high-quality, cutting-edge practices in health promotion and disease prevention that advance public health in Mexico.

Who We Are Today

The INSP has become one of the largest public health institutions in the developing world and is the leading institution for teaching, research and service to improve public health not only in Mexico but in all of Latin America. The INSP programs reflect public health’s tripartite focus: utilizing biomedical sciences, employing population-based approaches to research and practice, and supporting health systems research.

Within the Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH), the INSP is one of just two member institutions that offer professional and academic degrees to the Spanish-speaking public health community. The instruction, 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 not only in Mexico but also across Latin America, the United States and, increasingly, worldwide. The INSP fulfills a critical need within the public health community in Latin America and around the world.

The current Director General and Dean of the INSP is Dr. Mauricio Hernández Ávila, and the Associate Academic Dean is Dr, Laura Magaña Valladares. The deputy directors of the research centers are highly qualified researchers with a strong commitment to enhancing instruction, research and service activities in fulfillment of the INSP’s mission. INSP faculty includes epidemiologists, physicians, biologists, psychologists, sociologists, anthropologists, environmental engineers, toxicologists, statisticians, nutritionists, chemists and other specialists in the field of public health. The main campus is located in the city of Cuernavaca, 70 kilometers south of Mexico City. The INSP also has campuses in Mexico City and Tapachula, Chiapas.

Since receiving CEPH accreditation in 2006, the INSP has improved its training programs by carrying out curriculum reform focused on competency-based education, offering continuing education through multiple formats (online, executive and blended), reorganizing research to become mission-oriented, adding planning and evaluation dimensions, and developing public health services that are linked to scientific results from INSP research projects. In addition, the INSP has increased its international scope by collaborating with other institutions in Latin America, the United States and Europe through its 2008 accreditation in tropEd, a network of higher education institutions in international health.

In accordance with its mission, the INSP constantly works 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. This self-study provides detailed information about the INSP’s multifaceted efforts, ongoing projects and contributions to the field of public health.
