Colombia’s healthcare area, like many different sectors within the nation, was utterly overhauled as a part of the nation’s sweeping reforms that adopted the adoption of a brand new Structure in 1991. The reforms launched a compulsory social medical health insurance system, with a lot of its options designed according to the theoretical ideas of managed competitors. The reforms, geared toward revamping and regulating the hitherto fragmented medical health insurance sector, concomitantly launched a two-tier system — one for the formally employed and one other for the low-income, casual sector workforce — with the broader goal of attaining common medical health insurance. Nearly three a long time later, the decision, on the impression of the reforms, varies throughout the system’s stakeholders and due to this fact, stays ambiguous. Whereas the reforms granted a constitutional proper to healthcare, common entry in observe is but to be achieved. Admittedly, the jury remains to be out on the optimality of the reform method Colombia undertook, signalling the vital classes its case holds for growing international locations like India. The embedment of managed competitors ideas in an setting characterised by low-state presence and weak rule of legislation makes Colombia an fascinating setting to analyse, holding precious classes for policymakers searching for to undertake comparable approaches in comparable jurisdictions.
