University of New Mexico's Latin American Social Medicine Project

Add a comment

The University of New Mexico has developed a unique database of publications pertaining to Latin American Social Medicine. In collaboration with the University Health Sciences Center (Centro Universitario de Ciencias de la Salud – CUCS) of the University of Guadalajara (Universidad de Guadalajara) (Mexico) they are cataloging key texts (books, chapters, articles) that relate to Latin American Social Medicine. They index texts originally published in Spanish, English and Portuguese. Structured abstracts are then prepared in all three languages and made available on their website.

A search through the website for “Juan Garcia” brought up six of the key articles written by Juan César García, one of the principal thinkers in LASM, each with an English abstract. The database is currently the only English-language resource that will allow access to these materials so easily.
