Advancing the Human Right to Health

Oxford University Press

This chapter explains how Mexico’s System of Social Protection in Health has successfully translated a ‘democratization of health’ into a social rights-based approach to health characterized by priority setting in the definition of comprehensive benefits and financial protection against catastrophic health expenditures. It begins with an overview of Mexico’s health indicators. It then discusses Mexican health reform; the expansion of the right to healthcare; international commitments to guarantee the right to healthcare; international cooperation for the realization of the right to healthcare; and future directions towards the right to health.

Keywords:   mexican healthcare system, public health, health policy, health reform
