In Mexico, the inclusion within the Federal Legislation, of palliative care for individuals with terminal conditions took place in 2009, specifying the need to attend the care of those individuals “with illnesses that have no cure and are in an irreversible condition of health deterioration”, but people with dementia are not included as a specific group. However, very little advances have been made and public services for palliative care are almost inexistent. No private services offering support for palliative care could be identified and only two non-profit organisations in the country were identified providing these support services for any individual/illness.
