Prior to launching AMK Health in Mexico City in 2007, serial entrepreneur JD Puentes founded and sold a number of companies, including specialty pharmacy Sanantia and e-health firm Medicina Interactiva. AMK Health focuses on the Hispanic healthcare market. Its services run the gamut from marketing communication strategies and advertising to sales support, packaging and market research.

AMK Health’s expertise spans a range of medical conditions such as allergy, urology, cardiology and rheumatology. The company’s client roster includes Allergan, Amgen, Bayer, GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi and Sandoz.

Recent accomplishments by Puentes and AMK Health include the launch of more than 30 brands in Latin America; work on the only digital therapeutic app approved by COFEPRIS, the Mexican Health Authority’s regulatory arm, for type 1 diabetes; and the debuts of Galenox.com and pre-ENARM.com, online learning resources for physicians. By the end of the second quarter of 2019, the company expects to launch Latin America’s first telehealth app.
