  • Chiapas ranks 6th in Mexico in lack of access to health services.

  • In Chiapas, only 13.6% of the population is affiliated with IMSS or ISSSTE and 69.4% has access to the services of the Ministry of Health.

  • 76.4% of the population in Chiapas lives in poverty, of which 29.7% are in extreme poverty.

  • In Mexico, ethnicity, class and gender produce inequality and inequity which are reproduced in forms of discrimination and mistreatment in different areas and institutions, including health services during medical care.
