Mérida, Yucatán.- In 2017, Yucatán was one of the states with the most achievements in the fight against various diseases, using efficient strategies to obtain better results, such as the historical decrease in maternal mortality.
During 2012, the state had a rate of 50.1 for each 100,000 births in the area, one of the five highest in the country. However, one year later, the figure was reduced to 9.9, placing Yucatán in the third nationally, with fewer number of cases.
With the aim of providing comprehensive quality care to pregnant patients, the State Government began in October 2015 the construction of the new Maternal and Child Hospital, which will have the triple number of beds, the double amount of operating rooms and 40 percent more surgeries than it used to have.
Similarly, the incidence of vector-borne diseases has shown an unprecedented decline. In the case of dengue, the Ministry of Health reported a total of 111 cases statewide during 2017, while in 2012 more than 5,000 cases were registered. In the same way, between 2016 and 2017, Zika decreased from 820 to 15 cases, and Chikungunya from 11 to zero.
This demonstrates the new awareness, and th use of preventive actions against this type of diseases, and the effective implementation of governmental strategies to erradicate the Aegedes Egypti mosquito.
The success of these actions is important and must be maintained, while the fight against other diseases found in the Yucatan, such as obesity or depression, needs to be strengthened.
