Overview

The government responded to the COVID-19 pandemic with cuts to public spending in various areas. Health workers reported that they lacked access to personal protective equipment and the benefits needed to ensure a safe working environment. Reports of violence against women increased. Security forces continued to carry out arbitrary detentions and employ excessive use of force, at times resulting in unlawful killings. The Attorney General’s Office announced progress in the investigation into the enforced disappearance of 43 Ayotzinapa college students in 2014. The Senate recognized the competence of the UN Committee on Enforced Disappearances to examine individual complaints. The President stigmatized human rights defenders and the media on various occasions and downplayed the problem of violence against women.
