Social Security (Health and Pensions)
Chile is experiencing population ageing, along with increasingly higher rates of non-communicable diseases such as diabetes and hypertension. This poses new challenges for the health sector, particularly in infrastructure, treatment and patient care. It also demands cross-cutting risk factors prevention strategies for those diseases. Espacio Público works on proposing evidence-based public policy proposals to improving both health-sector institutions and epidemiological indicators. The former include proposals to improving the health system, while the latter proposes interventions to social determinants that have an impact over the health of Chileans.
