LOPEZ-ARELLANO, Oliva  and  BLANCO GIL, José. Opposite pathways in social health care in Mexico. Salud Colectiva [online]. 2008, vol.4, n.3, pp.319-333. ISSN 1851-8265.

Current political plurality in Mexico is expressed in different models of social policies and in the tension of the exercise of government between domestic and national levels. The objective of this paper was to contrasts the contents together with the main conflictive points of the national health policy (Mexico) against the domestic health policy (Mexico's Federal District). To achieve this goal, development plans, programmatic documents and budgets within the period 1994-2006 were analyzed. As a consequence, similarities and substantial differences were found regarding socio-sanitary diagnoses, agendas, strategies and priority programs.

Keywords : Health Sector Reform; Public Policies; Health Public Policy; Health Programs and Plans; Right to Health.
