Achieving universal access will require all players in the healthcare sector to rethink how they can contribute to increasing access to health services and products. The healthcare sector requires an inclusive, profound change that considers areas such as R&D, manufacturing, sales and distribution of pharmaceutical products and medical devices. What structures need to be reformed to improve access to healthcare in Mexico?
