LEAL FERNANDEZ, Gustavo. Influenza A (H1N1): a minimal framework of those directly responsible. Desacatos [online]. 2010, n.32, pp.53-62. ISSN 1405-9274.
This study examines three determining factors that weighted on the pandemic of influenza A (H1N1) emergency, which Mexico is facing since April 2009. These are: the failure of decentralization, the weight of some market-based interests represented by the State health care system (Social Security) as well as the health sector, in addition to the financial approach that prevails in government sector-based decision-making processes, from president Ernesto Zedillo's government up to that of Felipe Calderón.
