The Latinamerican Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (LASPGHAN), through its Endoscopy and Procedures Committee, has performed a cuantitative and cualitative evaluation of Pediatric Endoscopy Centers and Pediatric Endoscopy Trainings Centers in 13 latinamerican countries. We have simultaneously investigated about the availability of other diagnostic technologies and procedures such as impedance, manometry, etc. A diagnose of the current situation of pediatric endoscopy in Latinamerica can be made through the information contained in the present report, identifying areas of greater advance in this particular field and allowing the elaboration of exchange plans, academic activities and certification programs that will ultimately improve the population´s access to quality specialized services of pediatric diagnostic, therapeutic and advanced endoscopy.
