About the Event

The Division of Global Health presents “Basics of the Mexican Health Care System,” a primer for faculty, staff, students and community members interested in cross-border partnerships and collaborative health work with Mexico.

The event is presented virtually by Julio Zapata of Eli Lilly LATAM and welcomes all audience members engaged or interested in Mexico’s health space. The talk will be presented in English on Zoom and will be followed by a moderated Q&A by Ricardo Ainslie, director of education and research for AMPATH Mexico.

Zapata is a senior pricing, value and access manager for Eli Lilly LATAM. He is an economic and political specialist with a master’s in business economics and experience in public policy, economics, corporate relations, government affairs, advocacy and health care policy.

In his one-hour talk, audience members will learn about the history of Mexican health care, the three different approaches to the health system and the role of the main actors in health systems. The talk will highlight some of the challenges in the road to providing universal access to care within the country and includes a quick overview of how the current administration has impacted policy and health outcomes for patients.
