“Improving the Health of the Poor in Mexico.”

Review the case study “Improving the Health of the Poor in Mexico.” Then, prepare your response to the following questions:
In general, how do politics and economics influence health and health care?
What might the benefits be of awarding the mothers cash grants as described in the case study about the Progresa/Oportunidades program?
What social problems might be created by giving the mothers cash grants as described in the case study?
As described in the case study, do you think the resources were ethically distributed? (Think about stereotyping.)
What changes do you think should be made to the Progresa/Oportunidades program, if any?
If the Progresa/Oportunidades program were to be discontinued for any reason, what could you, as a nurse, say that might help to maintain funding?
Do you think a similar program, one like the Progresa/Oportunidades program, might work in your community? Why or why not?
