The undersecretary in charge of Gatell will have more powers

The Undersecretary of Health, Hugo López-Gatell, reported this Wednesday on the redesign of the Undersecretariat of Prevention and Health Promotion, of which he is head, to give rise to the Undersecretariat of Public Health, an entity in which they will focus more attributions.

López-Gatell explained the formation of the Undersecretariat of Public Health during the symposium “New professional competencies in Public Health in the Post-Covid-19 era”, where he pointed out that this restructuring of the Undersecretariat of Prevention and Health Promotion was raised since February 2019.

The official from the Ministry of Health explained that the restructuring of the undersecretary under his charge is due to the fact that its current structure dates back “three and a half six-year terms”, for which, he assured, it was necessary to use a “multidisciplinary” approach that responded to the new conditions in the field of public health.

He also detailed that, with the redesign, the Undersecretariat of Public Health will have nine attached units, some of them newly created, which will be: the National Center for Health Emergencies, the National Center for Health Intelligence, as well as the Commission National Mental Health and Addictions.
