  2. 2. BACKGROUND  In 2009 in the framework of the Mesoamerican health project, developed by the INSP and financed by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, a group of experts from the ministries of health and national statistical institutes met in order to make the diagnosis of the national health information system (HIS) in the region. In this initiative also participated the Pan American Health Organization.  This group met in three occasions in Mexico, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica. At the end of the project participants made evident the need to develop a webpage for communication allowing to continue the exchange of experiences in SIS.  The National Institute of Public Health of Mexico (INSP) proposed the idea of a SharePoint portal to start the online collaboration.  The early members of the group suggested a more friendly web-based environment and the first web-portal was developed: www.relacsis.org.This development was financed jointly by the INSP and the Measure Evaluation Project.
