Abstract

Abstract title

Performance of the Health System in Mexico in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic from the perspective of key actors

Abstract text

This study sets out the role of perceptions of key actors in the health sector in building social representations relating to the performance of the Health System in Mexico in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. We interview key players from the different subsystems that make up the Health System, which we identify as political, strategic, tactical and operational, depending on their responsibilities and the area in which they make decisions. We comment on the definition of social artifacts that illustrate –and allow– the finition of the governance of a sistema de salud,emphasizing the fact that the social object of any health system is to provide services to care for collective health. The different social representations materialize in the perception of the actors involved in decision-making and are implemented in su their individual performance and collective performance, according to orders of the highest level of power. The governance of Health Systems enhances the mechanical reproduction of these representations in the work, thinking and visualizing of those who articulate their operation. From where it is inferred that such governance serves as a device of power from which the social artifacts deployed in the perception of key players emerge.
