Public health infrastructure investment difficulties in Chile: concessions and public tenders
Dificultades de la inversión en infraestructura pública de salud en Chile: concesiones y licitación pública
This paper seeks to highlight the problems of gaps in health infrastructure in Chile, and to analyze the mechanisms by which it is provided. In Chile this is done in two ways: the first is through competitive bidding or sector-wide modality. The second way is through hospital concessions. Both mechanisms have had difficulties in recent years, which are reported. Finally, we propose ways to improve the provision of health infrastructure in Chile.
