Proposed text on Mexico[edit]

I've deleted the following text from the "Americas" section:

????? Mexico has Universal Health care for the children who were born since January 5th, 2007...please do not delete this information, just edit it. read the info here

The tone is non-encyclopedic, and since the source isn't in English, it's impossible for a non-Spanish speaker to verify. If this information is correct (and I have no reason to believe that it is not), we need someone who can verify it and (ideally) find an English-language source, and then we need to rework the text to make it more encyclopedic. Depending on how much information is available, it may be appropriate to create a new subsection for Mexico. —Preceding unsigned comment added by EastTN (talkcontribs) 17:04, August 8, 2008

Mexico's Universal Health Care
Accompanied by state governor Leonel Godoy Rangel and Health Secretary José Ángel Córdova Villalobos, President Calderón declared that regardless of the country's accumulated lag in health and the number of years that have elapsed without dealing with the problem, this Administration is determined to deal with it.
Proof of this, he declared, is that in 2009, Federal Government will assign $133 billion pesos to this sector, in other words, 20% more than in 2008. He added that over the past two years, the amount of resources assigned to the Health Secretary have doubled, while the amount allocated for Popular Insurance has risen from $16 to $48 billion pesos.
“I am convinced that Mexico will only be a more equitable, fairer country when every Mexican has guaranteed, quality medical care," he stated. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:01, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

The President announced that the Hospital he opened in this municipality involved over $50 million pesos in investment from his administration and will benefit the northeast and east region of Michoacán.
He added that this General Hospital, which he suggested should be called the Bicentennial Hospital, will have six specialties: Pediatrics, gyneco-obstetrics, internal medicine, surgery, anesthesiology and dentistry, in addition to traumatology, since it is located in the middle of the Mexico-Guadalajara highway.
“If we go on like this, to celebrate the Bicentennial, by 2011, Mexico will be one of the few countries in the world to have achieved universal health coverage," he explained.
Mexico is going to accomplish public universal health care by 2011: —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 21:56, December 17, 2008
