Currently, government strategies for diabetes care are aimed at the care of the disease and not prevention. The importance of attending to the population from prevention lies in the high mortality rates and high costs that the disease or complications of this generates for a country. The objective of this review is to analyze governmental and non-governmental strategies that focus on diabetes care or risk factors that promote the development of the disease.</p> Oliva Lazcano-Guevara Copyright (c) 2019 Mexican Journal of Medical Research 2019-07-05 2019-07-05 7 14 6 12 10.29057/mjmr.v7i14.3865 Quality management model to bring security culture promotion to the hospitals of the Secretaria de Salud in Hidalgo, Mexico https://repository.uaeh.edu.mx/revistas/index.php/MJMR/article/view/3871 <p>Patient safety is a priority at any level of health care, each stakeholder involved in the process serves as a key element for efficient care, providing quality, safe, and on time procedures that generate key indicators for the development of our state and our country.
