2006: The National Council for Science and Technology in Mexico (CONACYT) authorized 35.5 million pesos to support the project previously titled CISIDA, made up of 5 sub-projects with nation-wide impact.
The general objective of this project was to generate scientific evidence to optimize the effectiveness and efficiency of the treatment, care, and prevention of secondary cases of HIV / AIDS and Tuberculosis in Mexico.
To achieve these objectives of this project, a multidisciplinary and inter-institutional Research Consortium was proposed, which would be made up of an experienced group of clinicians, epidemiologists, behavioral science experts, and economists.
2007: CISIDAT was founded as a non-profit organization and obtained its accreditation as an Authorized Grantee to issue tax-deductible receipts. CISIDAT also obtained its registrations through the National Institute for Social Development and the National Council for Science and Technology in Mexico.
2011-2019: in this period, CISIDAT expanded its vision to other areas of health research besides just HIV/AIDS and TB. Currently, CISIDAT focuses on topics across the health sciences.
Since its creation, CISIDAT’s mission has been to facilitate and support the work of the National Institutes of Health in Mexico and other allied health science institutions to improve public policies and thereby the general health of the population.
