At CENETEC we consider the definition of Health Technologies as provided in the WHA60129 World Health Organization Assembly, as follows:

"The application of organized knowledge and skills in the form of devices, medicines, vaccines, procedures and systems, developed to solve a health problem and improve quality of lives"

CENETEC products are planned, in accordance with what is asked to the member states by the World Health Organization, considered at the Health Technologies Resolution WHA60129, approved on May 2007 specifically in the following items:

1 .To collect, verify, update and exchange information on Health Technologies, in particular medical devices, as an aid to their prioritization of needs and allocation of resources;
2.to formulate, as appropriate, national strategies and plans for the establishment of systems for the assessment, planning, procurement and management of Health Technologies, in particular medical devices, in collaboration with personnel involved in Health Technology Assessment and biomedical engineering.
3.to draw up national or regional guidelines for good manufacturing and regulatory practices, to establish surveillance systems and other measures to ensure the quality, safety and efficacy of medical devices and where appropriate in international harmonization;
4. To establish, where necessary, regional and national institutions of health technology, and collaborate and build partnership with health -care providers, industry, patients associations and professional, scientific and technical organizations;
5. To collect information that interrelates medical devices, which deal with priority public health conditions at different levels of care and in various settings and environments, with the required infrastructure, procedures and reference tools.

The National Center for Health Technology Excellence (CENETEC) is a Minister of Health agency, whose main purpose is to produce objective, reliable and timely information related with Health Technologies. CENETEC is organized in three main programs: Medical Equipment Planning; Health Technology Assessment; and e- Health.

To address these challenges, the Mexican Health Ministry created CENETEC -January 2004- responding to the need for objective information on appropriate health technology use, management and assessment, for decision and policy makers. The final goal is to increase quality and safety of health services and have a better allocation of appropriate resources according to the population health
