Description This study argues that the global health governance system has led to the formation of a number of expert networks that serve as mechanisms for the circulation of evidence-based ideas and that promote cooperation and the implementation of World Health Organization (who) recommendations. However, the outbreak of Covid-19 has brought to light the limitations of these networks. In the case of Mexico, two principal problems have been observed: first, the existence of experts who belong to a cross-governmental network and who make decisions based on political interest, to the detriment of global recommendations; and second, a divided knowledge community of rival groups that damages the actions of these experts in their efforts to transmit ideas and spread knowledge.
En el presente estudio se argumenta que a partir del sistema de gobernanza global de la salud se han configurado distintas redes de expertos que sirven como mecanismos para la difusión de ideas basadas en la evidencia científica, que promueven la cooperación y la implementación de recomendaciones originadas en la Organización Mundial de la Salud (oms). Sin embargo, el brote de la Covid-19 ha visibilizado las limitaciones de estas redes. En el caso de México, se han observado dos problemas principales: primero, la existencia de expertos miembros de una red transgubernamental que toman decisiones basadas en intereses políticos, dejando de lado las recomendaciones derivadas de lo global; y segundo, una comunidad epistémica dividida, con grupos rivales, lo que perjudica la actuación de estos expertos en su labor como transmisores de ideas y difusores de conocimiento.
