Chapter Summary

The world health organization (WHO) concept implies instead the idea of an unstable equilibrium between people and their environment, so that systemic policies are the best, and those which foster permanent disequilibrium, such as the poisoning of the air, should be discontinued. The e 'right to health' is the timely and accessible supply of needed services, as 'health' is the daily expression of human life, a category not subject to trade or privilege. The post-War 'opportunity window' found a willing partner in this poor, low-population country. Chile's productive base was mainly local minerals and raw materials. The comparatively new National Health Service (NHS) worked and progressed in the same manner, as the effect of central planning, rationalization, and resource pooling and referral provided an impressive improvement to the quantity and quality of services delivered. The health and social security systems were a mainstay of the new order.

Keywords:Chile; health care system; national health service (NHS); world health organization (WHO)
