Abstract

Este artículo analiza la sostenibilidad del gasto público en salud, desde la perspectiva del costo de las principales enfermedades crónicas que padece la población mexicana, y que debe cubrir el gobierno federal. Asimismo, pretende abrir la discusión sobre la cobertura efectiva universal de salud en México, a través de una herramienta de microsimulación que permita presentar y evaluar diferentes escenarios en cuanto a su costo financiero, para poder hacer propuestas de financiamiento sostenible, principalmente porque se están enfrentando cambios demográficos y epidemiológicos que conllevan aumentos en los costos de atención médica.
