Born in the early 20th century, Mexico’s National Health System has evolved through the years. Besides the widely popular IMSS, the system now includes state oil giant PEMEX and military facilities

As the system has grown, so too have the challenges it faces. OECD recommendations to strengthen the Mexican health system include expanding coordination between institutions, aligning the standardization of processes, boosting competition among providers and promoting the e ectiveness of hospitals. According to the financial services company, “a population’s health is an indispensable value for economic development and social welfare.” This is why better coordination between financial services firms, suppliers, associations and institutions is required.
