Have updated and quality information on health conditions of the population and nutrition information as well as coverage of health actions, is an imperative for decision-making. Information is also a tool to evaluate the performance of different actors involved in the field of population health: analyzing trends in coverage of different health strategies, and their relationship to health outcomes and nutrition they look themselves. Having visited more than 50,000 homes across the country between October 2011 and May 2012, the National Survey of Health and Nutrition 2012 has already offered a comprehensive document on the issues under discussion, an overview of the health situation and nutrition in Mexico. The reading of that document, the National Results report suggests new questions, arouses interest in knowing in greater detail the issues to be prioritized.
