CHARVEL, Sofía et al. Needs in coverage and care for lung cancer in Mexico. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2019, vol.61, n.3, pp.339-346.  Epub 03-Mar-2020. ISSN 0036-3634.


To analyze the coverage of lung cancer in Mexico and offer recommendations in this regard.

Materials and methods:

By means of the conformation of a multidisciplinary group, we analyze the burden of the disease relative to the lung cancer and the access to the medical treatment offered by the different public health subsystems in Mexico.


Important inequalities in lung cancer care are documented among the different public health subsystems. Our data suggest differential access and coverage to both traditional treatments and existing therapeutic innovations and differences in the capacity of health service providers to guarantee the right to health protection without distinction.


Recommendations are made on the need to improve actions for tobacco control, early diagnosis for lung cancer and inclusion of innovative therapies and homologation among different public health service providers through financing via tobacco taxes.

Palabras llave : lung cancer; coverage; inequity.
