Title

Social insurance (pensions and health), labour markets and coverage in Latin America

Author

Mesa-Lago, Carmelo

Description

In the last few decades, nearly all Latin American countries have reformed their social insurance health programmes and undertaken reforms to privatise their pension programmes. The transformation of the labour market has had an impact on coverage and reforms, and social insurance policies have not adapted to the changing labour market. This paper analyses the relationship between the labour market, social insurance and coverage of the labour force and the population in Latin America.
