This paper describes a unique system through which health care-related human rights are now being monitored and protected in Mexico. Based on the ombudsman concept, the system focuses on identifying and responding to violations of human rights and dignity which may occur in the context of health care delivery. Experience thus far has been encouraging: the Mexican population has identified and used the National Commission of Human Rights as a forum for a variety of health-related complaints. -from Authors
