Public health systems in Mexico and Latin America face a double burden of disease. On the one hand, chronic non-communicable diseases such as obesity, hypertension, diabetes and kidney disease generate great pressure given the growing demand for health services. On the other hand, the demand for pregnancy care services persists, as well as care for infectious diseases.
It is necessary to promote a paradigm shift that allows for health services:
- Focused on proactive prevention and anticipation of risks and damages
- Centered on the person, with accompaniment and human sense
- Ubiquitous, with community reach and traceability of your health status
- Focused on the continuum of quality care
Thus, with the aim of having a comprehensive primary care centered on the person, the Carlos Slim Foundation has created MIDO Integral, which allows the systematic evaluation and monitoring of risks and damages to health throughout life, from pregnancy until adulthood.
MIDO Integral allows the follow-up of a person in their life line, from pregnancy, early childhood, school age, adolescence and even adulthood, with an ecosystem that facilitates personalized public health.
