Mexico: In 3 years there will be health service like that of Denmark, Sweden, Canada, says AMLO

This morning, the Federal Chief Executive was questioned about the possible stoppage that has been called by residents of the country due to the delay in the payment of their scholarships and the reimbursement of a bonus that was withheld. “It’s a matter of principle for us, we can not betray ourselves. We have to comply, and I have already said: not paying or withholding wages is sin, “he said.

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador foresaw this morning that Mexico will have a health system like the Nordic countries or Canada in three years. He reiterated that if they are owed, the resident doctors will be paid.

“I believe that in 3 years the medical attention and medicines will be free for all Mexicans, and we will have a health service equal to that of the Nordic countries, Denmark, Sweden, as well as Canada,” he said.

However he said that it is a process that should go little by little, because there are, for example, 80 hospitals that left unfinished, with an advance of 30 percent.

“We have to address this, decide which hospitals to finish, when to finish them, which hospitals need more urgently to be equipped, to solve the supply of medicines,” he said.

“I can not do it overnight, because it will involve improving the 20 thousand rural medical units; It will imply that all second-level health services will work, “he added, adding that it will also imply improving the service and supply of medicines.

“Do not even use the word basic box again,” he said.

He said that it seeks to guarantee social security from the “cradle to the grave”.

He predicted that there would be opposition because they wanted “anarchy, disorder, because they take advantage.”

This morning, the Federal Chief Executive was questioned about the possible stoppage that has been called by residents of the country due to the delay in the payment of their scholarships and the reimbursement of a bonus that was withheld.

He stressed that if the resident doctors are owed, they will be paid. He said that this Monday that the issue will be addressed, and not by pressure, but by conviction of the Government of Mexico.

“It’s a matter of principle for us, we can not betray ourselves. We have to comply, and I have already said: not paying or withholding wages is sin, “he said.

Dozens of residents receive a monthly scholarship that goes from 9 thousand 500 pesos to 14 thousand pesos according to their grade, working hours and shifts, but report that these have not been provided despite their time of residence Three to six years, they have a full-time work day and long work guards.

In addition, they demand the reimbursement of a bonus for the end of the sexennium of 3 thousand pesos that was delivered to them in December, but which was discounted at the beginning of the year.
