Reflections on the legacy of INCAP
Abstract:The second Director of the Institute of Nutrition of Central America and Panama (INCAP) reminisces about the productive program of valuable and practical research at the highest level developed with local personnel in a small and poor developing region. The same was true for the world-class advanced training program that contributed many hundreds of professionals, not only to the region, but to all of Latin America and to other countries. The major contributions of INCAP in its first 25 years are cited along with reasons for its success.
