Like many national public health institutes, the work of Mexico's National Institute of Public Health (INSP) must address the diverse health needs of a country which faces a broad range of health challenges. A new, comprehensive burden of disease report, the Carga de la enfermedad en Mexico 1990-2010, assesses the causes of morbidity and mortality among the country's diverse population. The causes and risk factors affecting men and women from infancy to adulthood are included, across the country's varied geographic and demographic landscapes, and the report highlights the decreases made in both child mortality rates and deaths due to infectious disease from 1900-2010.

The report features an introduction by IANPHI Secretary General and INSP Director General Dr. Mauricio Hernandez Avila (found on page 11).
