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

This post was originally published on this site

Abstract

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.
