Health Policy and Finance Challenges in Latin America and the Caribbean: An Economic Perspective

Aceso Global CEO Maureen Lewis and André Medici, World Bank, co-authored a recent article, “Health Policy and Finance Challenges in Latin America and the Caribbean: An Economic Perspective,” published in the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Economics and Finance. The article outlines trends and challenges in health financing across the region, and provides an overview of the health economics literature and research to date. It then offers directions for reform that move the conversation beyond issues of funding and equity to new ideas around efficiency, quality, and payment and delivery models.

This article builds on a recent Aceso Global Policy Working Paper. Access the full article here.
