Abstract

El sistema de salud colombiano ha experimentado transformaciones importantes en las últimas décadas. En la medida en que en algunos casos los avances logrados en materia de cobertura y en los indicadores del estado de salud de la población muestran diferencias entre las regiones del país, el Centro de Estudios Económicos Regionales (CEER) desarrolló una agenda de investigación en esta área. Este documento tiene dos propósitos: (i) sintetizar los principales resultados que en esta materia arrojan los estudios del CEER; y (ii) presentar las recomendaciones de política que surgen del análisis de la problemática regional del sector salud. El trabajo concluye que aún existen algunas disparidades regionales en el estado de salud, la oferta de servicios y el acceso a los mismos. Un mayor esfuerzo para reducir esas diferencias debería ser una prioridad de la política de salud pública en Colombia. ******ABSTRACT: The Colombian health system has undergone major transformations in recent decades. Since there is evidence that shows the progress made in terms of coverage and indicators of the health status of the population varies among regions, the Center for Regional Economic Studies (CEER) developed a research agenda in this topic. This document has two purposes: (i) to synthesize the main results of the CEER´s work; and (ii) to provide some policy recommendations arising from this analysis. The paper concludes that there are still some regional disparities in health status, the supply of services and access to them. An additional effort to reduce those differences should be a priority of public health policy in Colombia.
