    Presentation of the Review “Improving ISSSTE’s Public Procurement for Better Results”

    We are pleased that the ISSSTE has decided to conduct an assessment of the implementation of the recommendations in our first report. This is a sign of its commitment to complete the process of reforming the ISSSTE, as one of the key components of the Mexican health system. The ISSSTE should, can and intends to become an example of best practices in the procurement and contracting of goods and services.

    Presentation of the Review of the Mexican Health System 2016

    A decade ago we published the first OECD Health System Review of Mexico. Since then, a great deal has changed, and for the better. Over the last 10 years, the publicly-subsidised health insurance plan (Seguro Popular) has extended coverage to more than 50 million people who were previously unprotected. Health service users today report a satisfaction rate of 97%.

    OECD Reviews of Health Systems: Mexico 2016

    Ten years after the introduction of publically-funded universal health insurance, the Mexican health system finds itself at a critical juncture. Unquestionably, some measures of health and health system performance have improved: those previously uninsured now use health services more often, whilst numbers reporting impoverishing health expenditure having fallen from 3.3% to 0.8%. Other indicators, however, remain worrying. Rates of survival after heart attack or stroke are markedly worse than in other OECD countries. Prevention is a particular concern: with 32% of the adult population obese, Mexico ranks as the second most obese nation in the OECD and almost 1 in 6 adults are diabetic. Other key metrics imply deep-rooted inefficiencies in the system: administrative costs, at 8.9% of total health spending, are the highest in the OECD and have not reduced over the past decade. Likewise, out-of-pocket spending has stuck at nearly 50% of total health spending - the highest in the OECD - and implies that individuals feel the need to visit private clinic despite having health insurance. In short, Mexico’s massive public investment in its health system has failed to translate into better health and health system performance to the extent wished and a programme of continued, extensive reform is needed. This report sets out the OECD’s recommendations on the steps Mexico should take to achieve this.

    The Mexican health care system has made great progress during the last decade – but the remaining challenges are daunting

    In the ten years since the introduction of Seguro Popular, some 50 million Mexicans previously at risk of unaffordable health care bills now have access to health insurance. The OECD Review of Health Systems: Mexico 2016 finds that the share of the population exposed to unaffordable or impoverishing health care costs has fallen from 3.3% to 0.8% of the population in the past decade.

    Effective Delivery of Large Infrastructure Projects - The Case of the New International Airport of Mexico City

    The New International Airport of Mexico City (NAICM) should position Mexico as a regional hub and improve its competitiveness. It is scheduled to be operational in 2020 in answer to the pressing need for the expansion of the city's airport capabilities. The airport, whose construction is managed by a state-owned entity (GACM), is currently the largest Mexican infrastructure project.

    A project of this magnitude requires tailored strategic frameworks and actions in several policy areas. Building on international experience, this report provides a comprehensive assessment, and analysis and recommendations in four key dimensions contributing to the effective delivery of large infrastructure projects: governance, procurement, integrity and communication.
