Long-term care systems as social security: the case of Chile

This post was originally published on this site


Similar to many other countries, Chile is facing the challenges of rapid ageing and the increase in long-term care (LTC) needs for this population. Implementation of LTC systems has been the response to these challenges in other countries, however, Chile still lacks a strategy for addressing LTC needs. This article advocates for the implementation of a LTC system in Chile, demonstrating that this could be an effective and efficient response to cope with the current and future challenges faced by the country. The rationale for implementing a LTC system is based on the principles of the country’s social security system and on the fact that not having a LTC in place is not costless.
