Evaluación de Equidad en el Acceso a los Servicios de Salud de la Población Chilena: Desarrollo de un Instrumento para la Gestión Territorial de Salud

Project Information
Description: 

Chile's health guarantees approach to providing universal coverage for quality health care in a mixed health system has generated interest among researchers and policymakers globally. The program, called AUGE, is based on legally enforceable rights and explicit benefits related to an expanding list of priority health conditions, which covered 56 problems in 2009, representing 75% of the burden of disease.  Our project assesses social inequalities in health indicators before and after AUGE was implemented.
