Discussing the Mexican Health System with Rodolfo de la Torre

One of the issues we have been discussing through the years here on the show have to do with the status of Mexico’s Health System. This is a huge deal because through the years since I’ve been doing this show (2005) the Mexican Government has tried to provide universal healthcare services to the entire population. Any child born now automatically is supposed to have access to healthcare services and there is at least the intend to make sure that the poorest of the poor have access to at least basic healthcare. This is a huge endeavor, there is always going to be a question mark as to whether there is sufficient money to do these for these kinds of project or whether the money is being spent correctly and of course whether is actually making a difference in the Mexican population’s health. To talk about this, we have on the line Rodolfo de la Torre, he is the director of the Program of Social Development with Equity at the Centro de Estudios Espinosa Yglesias.
