In the event held at the Theater “Juan Moisés Calleja”, Germán Martínez Cázares stressed that at the same time, it is entrusted to take care financially and responsibly to the IMSS ordinary, that is, the one that is subsidized from employer quotas, which is for the insured.

The Director was pleased to begin his activities at the head of Social Security with people with disabilities, one of the most sensitive issues of the fourth transformation, in which he said, merits reasonable adjustments in their laws, Constitution, programs, public policies and distribution budget, so that the country complies with international commitments regarding disability.

In his speech, the health secretary, Jorge Carlos Alcocer, said that 70 years after the Universal Declaration of Human Rights there are still more than seven million people with disabilities in our country, whose rights, in some cases are severely limited or totally denied . This situation, he said, puts us in front of a challenge to build a new and inclusive society that makes them holders of rights.

He indicated that he attends this event to reaffirm the commitment of the institutions and because no one should be forgotten in our society; He highlighted the words said hours earlier by López Obrador, who has stated that discrimination must end, exclusion in all its forms .
