This chapter reviews Mexico's response to its HIV epidemic. As the HIV epidemic spreads in Mexico, its direct costs challenge the ability of healthcare institutions to provide services for those infected. The social costs are also enormous and affect families and entire communities. The financial impact on the social security system, which provides resources for approximately 40 percent of the population in Mexico, and more than 50 percent of the AIDS cases, could be destabilizing in future.
