Of course, the IMSS has all the resources to return to the first level it was at a few years ago, before falling into oblivion by previous administrations. But, for that, the effort of all is required to achieve such a noble purpose; and what better opportunity now that there is political will to make the necessary changes and, incidentally, implement new organizational criteria that respond to the needs of the institution.
Certainly, nothing better than constant exercise and sports to stay healthy, but without forgetting the important foundation of any structure: a balanced diet. That pending subject that has not been taught correctly, neither at school nor at home. And, as is well known, without a good diet nothing is guaranteed in terms of health. Hence the importance that everything must go hand in hand to prevent diseases that can be avoided.
Milenio Diario- Continues: It fills us with pride to say it: sport has returned to IMSS. On December 10, we presented the IMSS 2021 State Sports Award to Martha Paola Estrada, a beach volleyball athlete, and to Jaime Yeudiel Melgar, a paracyclist. And for this we have the presence of international athletes, such as Héctor Hugo Hernán Segura, Amalia Pérez Vázquez, Guillermo Pérez Sandoval, Mariana La Barby Juárez, Yahel Castillo and Horacio Llamas Grey. There we endorse the conviction of achieving not only the past glory of Social Security, but also surpassing it, so that no one is left behind and no one is left out, betting on sports as the best preventive medicine.
Fantasy and reality, bridges between childhood and maturity
But to become a high-performance athlete, like those who have given glory to Mexico, and whose IMSS facilities were the “springboard” to achieve their goals, an institutional leadership is required that is dedicated to the permanent surveillance of the execution of the plans and programs in charge of said purpose. Of course not all of them will be high achievers, but they could be much more than that if consistency is the norm. And nothing better, as pointed out by the Mtro. Robledo Aburto: Sport, the best preventive medicine. That is the historical goal of IMSS: Prevent!
Ambition is the limit of the human being
Due to its importance, and for the knowledge of the population, given that it is official information, we return to parts of the article Hope in the future, published in Milenio Diario- 12-28-21 and also written by Mtro. Zoé Robledo Aburto, general director of the IMSS. …An institution like the IMSS, with almost 80 years of existence, has been there when it has been most needed, in the past and in the present. That is why we believe, like Cárdenas and Renán, that the IMSS is the future that belongs to reason. The historical reason for treating the pandemic, yes, but without neglecting care for other ailments.
With the National Strategy for the Recovery of Ordinary Services that was launched in April, outpatient spaces were optimized, appointment recovery modules were used and 14 surgical sessions were carried out. This allows us to close 2021 with 80 million family medicine consultations, 13 million specialty consultations and 989 thousand surgeries. If we take 2019 as the last regular year, we will close with 75 percent of what was done in the year before the pandemic. It is estimated that most countries in the world will close with 50 percent. To be continue…
We wish a happy and prosperous New Year 2022 to all readers of EL HERALDO DE MÉXICO!
