What structures need to be reformed to improve access to healthcare in Mexico?

To protect and improve health globally and in Mexico, the WHO recommends a much greater emphasis on prevention, which can be best achieved through concrete efforts between the public and private health sectors.

How are industry and the authorities cooperating to foster prevention and health education to improve Mexico’s health profile?
