    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Health Ministry officials and representatives of the World Health Organization, discussed the coverage of the health system as part of an initiative involving the governments of the region to analyze the strategies and programs relating to social health systems. The goal is to universalize these systems in Latin America.

    Health Minister, María Elena López explained that although Costa Rica is an example of success in the service, we must not forget that there is a group of people who stand outside of the system, even though they are few, they are important and are located in marginalized urban, indigenous and border areas.

    She added that in Costa Rica one needs to define strategies to ensure inclusion in the health service. One of them might be generating quality jobs, or providing the assurance which through family allowances, are insured by the State to those excluded populations.

    Meanwhile, Jorge Luis Prosperi, representative of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and the World Health Organization (WHO), in Costa Rica, said that they will discuss with all ministers of health of the Americas the universal health coverage in each country, and then pass a resolution inviting countries providing universal coverage.

    He explained that in the case of our country this meeting is particularly relevant as it has a public social insurance with almost universal coverage and is a model for public social protection in Latin America, so it has a lot to offer in this topic.

    In the region, Costa Rica and Panama are the countries that have greater coverage. Nationwide it covers nearly 100 percent, while Panama covers 80 percent of the population.
