“I took over the presidency of EsSalud 10 days ago and in that short time I am being discriminated against again for being a woman, for my origins and, above all, for my firm decision to restore the trust of the insured in EsSalud,” she began her speech.
“Since I became the president of EsSalud, I have been working 24×7 for 13 million insured people. Stop mocking a woman who has been hard-wired to be at the forefront of government. Nothing will distract me,” he continued.
Rosa Gutiérrez issued a statement last Saturday confirming that she will continue to serve as Executive President of EsSalud and that she is not going to succumb to questions as her 15 years in her career have supported her.
“I do not and will not accept the imposition of groups that they want to continue to use Social Security for personal gain, and that they now do not hesitate to use all their connections with the media to prevent my administration from regaining the trust of the insured, he said in a statement released by the institution.
“As an example of signs of corruption: there is a 624 million watchdog contract process that has been delayed unaccompanied up to 40 times, in order to create a deficit and thus be able to award directly. This should not happen again, my duty is to watch every sun of the insured,” he said.
One of the most powerful questions Rose Gutierrez when she was minister of health, that was the mismanagement she made during the dengue epidemic.
