The meeting took place on Wednesday, said Alcocer, who noted the coincidence that the construction of a common agenda on access to Covid-19 vaccines will allow a future with greater hope.
There is bilateral interest in supporting migrants in the border region, as President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador stated in recent days during a virtual meeting with US Vice President Kamala Harris, he said.
The two countries share the common goal of working with institutions, the private sector and organizations, since, otherwise, ‘there would be more limited results,’ the Mexican health secretary said.
Alcocer praised President Joseph Biden’s decision to appoint Becerra as Secretary of Health and Human Services, and responded that he will work to ensure access to health for people who have long lacked services and medical care in the United States.
During the virtual meeting, the undersecretary of Prevention and Health Promotion, Dr. Hugo Lopez-Gatell, highlighted the collaboration between both nations, particularly in public health, which is a key element in the development of welfare models.
