Assessing the impact of IMSS procurement on national policies

As the largest health provider in Mexico, IMSS is an unavoidable actor of the national health system and represents a considerable source of revenue for the private sector. Therefore, this chapter explores the role of IMSS in the Mexican health system and how the entity could use its procurement to maximise the effectiveness of national health policies. In addition, considering the national impetus given to the support of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) which are the backbone of the Mexican economy, this chapter assesses the measures implemented by IMSS to facilitate SMEs access to its procurement opportunities.
