Based on this evolving regional context and drawing upon its extensive experience and expertise in international health training, PAHO's strong country-level presence and relationship with ministries of health and other national entities, and its vast array of relationships and networks in the Americas and across the globe, in 2008 the Organization launched a new decentralized modality of the TPIH called the "Leaders in International Health Program" (LIHP), naming it the following year after Edmundo Granda Ugalde, a public health physician from Ecuador, in recognition of his example, solidarity, innovative spirit, and invaluable contributions to public health and international health.
Hailing from academic institutions in the Americas and based on their experience as former LIHP or TPIH participants, mentors provide vital support and knowledge about international health, research methodology, and application of the Program's conceptual model to the country projects.
