To take care of women’s health in Merida, the City Council is joining the efforts of society and the government to prevent breast cancer, with a program of free mastographies and comprehensive medical services in neighborhoods and police stations.

Mayor Renán Barrera said that through the Directorate of Health and Social Welfare, he offers integral health services for women, including mastography studies, gynecological consultation and ultrasound, dentistry, psychology and nutrition, to prevent illnesses without affecting the family economy.
