“Fortunately, we have the opportunity to feel well endowed with the medicines that the community gives us, the medicines that they (the citizens) get in some way, through IMSS, ISSSTE, and Health Centers, and for some reason they no longer use them, the only thing we tell them is to check the expiration date,” he explained.
