Home health care in Mexico: An overview

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In Mexico, an old branch of the health care system is getting a new face. Home health care services, also known as community health nursing or public health nursing in Mexico, are emerging as a possible answer for addressing the treatment of chronic conditions such as diabetes and hypertension and for improving the management of cancer treatments. Both physicians and nurses will participate in this pilot program to take place in Mexico City. This article reviews the Mexican health care system, the current role of home health care within it, and the potential of home health care to emerge. It also illustrates the possibilities for home health care services in rural areas.
