This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Ecuador is considering establishing a system of guaranteed basic healthcare services, modelled on Chile's groundbreaking AUGE programme. So said Ecuador's President, Alfredo Palacio, following a meeting last week with Chilean health minister Pedro Garcia. A Chilean health ministry statement alluded to a prospective co-operation agreement with their Ecuadorian counterparts. Chile's AUGE (Acceso Universal y Garantias Explicitas) programme promises guaranteed services to all Chileans in 25 specialisms, in addition to basic social security coverage and care covered by private insurance schemes. A further 15 specialisms are being piloted under AUGE (since January 1) and are due to come into effect legally in July 2006.
