LA REBELIÓN DE LOS ENFERMOS
Es un movimiento social que inicia con el caso de Abel Montenegro; una persona como tú, a quien se le negaba injustamente su derecho a la salud por padecer una enfermedad crónico degenerativa.
Abel, de profesión maestro, afiliado al ISSSTESON se acercó a la Asociación Civil Sonora Ciudadana a platicar cómo debido a su condición de hipertenso no se le otorgaba atención médica a pesar de dar su aportación quincenal como cualquier derechohabiente. Luego de algunas reuniones iniciamos juntos un largo camino que tiene como meta acabar con la discriminación a las personas que no gozan de buena salud.
WHAT IS THE REBELION OF THE ILL?
This movement called “La Rebelión de los Enfermos” (The Raise of the ill) was born with an unusual visit, in 2008 a citizen walked up to the offices of the Non-Governmental Organization Sonora Ciudadana A.C. disappointed of the health public system, his last resort was our organization.
Abel Montenegro was suffering discrimination only because he was sick. Ironically why would someone need to be in good health to get access to social security and medical services? This was a clearly violation of his right to be health.
Responding at this abuse, Sonora Ciudadana A.C. undertook a legal fight in partnership with a similar organization called Fundar: Centro de Análisis e Investigación and finally, on March 18th 2009 the Supreme Cort of Justice of the Nation (SCJN) unanimously resolved in favor and issued the ruling 44/2009, allowing Abel and his wife, the desired access to the public health system. In the aftermath we could see this is only one success story, but there are many more with no happy endings, and that’s the main reason why “La Rebelión de los Enfermos” (The Raise of the Ill) exists.
This is a movement of people aiming to visualized and organized the grievances we receive in this website, in order to have an overview of the current situation of public health systems in Sonora, México.
We cannot keep in silence all the problems a person can go through in a public hospital, we need to speak up, get involved and be part of the solution to the problem that for many years has been invisibilized in detrimental of millions of Mexicans.
We need to demand our rights, we need you, come and to be part of The Raise of the Ill.
