What does it mean to be a physician activist in a middle income or poor country? Since 1917, the Mexican constitution has guaranteed universal healthcare for all workers. Yet making this constitutional promise a reality has been a persistent challenge that remains unresolved today. Mexican physicians have often been caught in the middle of political and policy discussions about the delivery of universal health care. Indeed, in 20th-century Mexico, physicians redefined their roles as healers and became activists, anthropologists, protestors, and, in some instances, guerrillas.
