Chapter Summary

The 1960s was a time of change for the traditional parties in Uruguayan politics. It had become increasing difficult for progressive forces to remain in the traditional parties as the space available to them was shrinking. It was from out of these progressive tendencies in conjunction with the prior independent tendencies that the Frente Amplio (FA) was formed. The Frente Amplio is endowed with experience and political reserves that constitute definite assets for contributing to the gestation of social changes and for overcoming the obstacles imposed by the old society of injustice, impunity and privileges. The broadening of new collective spaces for social participation with the presence of workers and citizens in the development of management is essential. It should take place in the public enterprises as is envisioned in the reforms being put forward in the health care sector.

Keywords: Frente Amplio (FA); health care sector; social participation; Uruguayan politics
