for a project on public health governance in Mexico
The Center for U.S.-Mexican Studies at the University of California at San Diego is a research center focused on promoting scholarship and understanding between researchers in both countries. This grant would allow the Center to continue compiling public information on the governance of Mexico’s public health sector, in addition to producing new research on common health problems in rural marginalized communities.
