In Chile, the year 2019 ended with political and social instability after multiple civil protests against the current government. These protests emerged in response to an increase in the cost of living and a general landscape of inequality. In spite of that, the country is still one of the largest economies in Latin America, with one of the highest gross domestic product per capita in the region, amounting to nearly 16 million U.S. dollars in 2018, as well as one of the highest per capita expenditure on health, adding up to almost 2,200 U.S. dollars in that same year. Spending on health has represented more than eight percent of the country’s GDP since 2015.
