AGUASCALIENTES – Now the diagnostics and treatment of ovarian cancer will be completely covered by the public health care plan, announced President Enrique Peña Nieto.
While celebrating the International Day of the Woman in Aguascalientes, the politician said that after meeting with the Secretary of Health, it was determined that the government institution is equipped to offer treatment to women who suffer from this condition.
“We are able to support total coverage in the diagnosis and treatment of ovarian cancer. The public health care plan from now on will cover in their totality diagnosis and treatment,” he said.
Accompanied by his cabinet members, and lacking his wife Angélica Rivera, Peña Nieto also announced better lines of credit through the program Small and Medium Business Women (Mujeres PYME). Through the Bank of the Mexican State, loans will be given to female business women of 50 thousand to 5 million pesos.
For the president of the Republic, that women have spaces of freedom and personal discovery is fundamental because it allows them to break with the ties that in many homes generate domestic violence, social deterioration and frustration. For that reason, he asked that all women seek to make their economic projects reality.
“Today, upon opening new spaces for access to credit, a woman will be able to begin her own project, her own business without fear. Decide to do it, don’t be afraid, you will have the mechanisms and the support to make it happen,” he said.
The president said that despite the steps that the government has taken in regards to the fall of income due to the fall in gas prices, they have raised budgets specifically set aside for women. He said that in 2016 the resources marked for women has risen 54 percent since 2012.
