Resumen

GUTIERREZ, Juan Pablo; GARCIA-SAISO, Sebastián; ESPINOSA-DE LA PENA, Rodrigo  y  BALANDRAN, Dulce Alejandra. Inequalities on indicators of chronic conditions among adults in Mexico: analysis of three health surveys. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2016, vol.58, n.6, pp.666-675. ISSN 0036-3634.  http://dx.doi.org/10.21149/spm.v58i6.7923.

Objective:

To analyze trends from 2000 to 2012 in socioeconomic inequalities in health related to diabetes and hypertension indicators in Mexico.

Materials and methods:

Cross-sectional analysis of three national health surveys (2000, 2006 and 2012), measuring inequality using absolute and relative gaps as well as the Slope Index of Inequality for diabetes and hypertension indicators.

Results:

From 2000 to 2012, there is a reduction in the gap related to the prevalence of diagnosed diabetes and hypertension, with a parallel reduction in the inequality related to care for those conditions, while an inequality gradient on diabetes care remains.

Conclusion:

While there is an evident progress in the reduction of inequalities for diabetes and hypertension diagnostic and care in Mexico, some inequalities remain. Given the contribution of these conditions to the burden of disease in the country, there is a need to strength the quality of health services that will promote effective access.
