This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The Mexican state of Tabasco is being billed as a model of healthcare investment nationally. The comments were made by health minister Julio Frenk Mora during a recent tour of the state, which has Mexico's highest levels of healthcare spending. New medical equipment, supplies and facilities were inaugurated during the visit, including a computed tomography scanner, four mobile healthcare units and a primary care centre. Tabasco was also the first state to implement the new national social protection system (SPS), which provided healthcare cover to 625,000 families across 22 states in 2003. The federal government aims to extend the programme to 1.5 million families across 29 of Mexico's 32 states by the end of 2004.
