It seems unbelievable, but what this article declares is nothing but the reality of a country that is trying to be better every time and in every area and in every service that its provided to the public; but sadly "trying" isn´t enough.

What the author does whith this brief article is a Yell of truth. Maybe the only thing that we can do, as the people who live day by day in this reality as medical students, is pray and make our voices heard, hoping that finally some day the services that are provided to the people in our country are not just enough but Qualified and Substantial.

Congratulations to the author for being the voice of the unheard.
