As a live witness of El Salvador´s Health Care System, I´m a firm believer that only a willing integral re-engeneering can improve health services, medical education and labour reality. No initiative that does not include this three aspects of the Health Care System can be effective.

As readers can imagine, the main problem roots to the lack of political will during the last decades. It´s time to reach the maturity in the making of decissions.
