MEXICO CITY — Pedestrians entering the bus hub of CETRAM Chapultepec or making their way towards the Bosque may have noticed the area a little more soiled than usual: dirty diapers hung like streamers surrounding the Secretaría de Salud building.

An encampment was in place, where protesters claim ‘We are complaining with words Dr. Narro Robles will understand.’

According to banners hung between the soiled diapers, the protesters are unsatisfied with the leadership of the Health Secretariat, claiming they were promised 70 new positions for young professionals, but the Secretaría de Salud has failed to deliver the positions or an adequate response to their petitions and demands.

This follows just one day after over 200 hospital workers protested outside the Directorate General of Administration and Personnel Development Office of the Health Secretariat in Mexico City, demanding reforms for working conditions for doctors and nurses. Currently 22 of the 32 hospitals in the capital are working under protests.

Participating in the forum “La Salud de Los Mexicanos,” on Friday, the head of the Health Secretariat José Narro Robles did not mention the protests, but indicated that the Health Secretariat was suffering from financial limitations despite receiving four budget increases in recent years.
