Abstract

En Argentina, como en la mayoría de los países del mundo, el sector sanitario ha sido tradicionalmente manejado por empresas públicas. Sin embargo, la corriente privatizadora de los últimos 10 años ha alcanzado a este sector lo cual la obliga a compatibilizar las ventajas de la provisión privada y las demandas sociales que caracterizan a los servicios públicos. La literatura especializada identifica como factores determinantes de la obtención de dichas ventajas, al diseño de la estructura y nivel de precios que se le impone al operador privado, y a los mecanismos de ajuste de dichos precios. En este trabajo se analizan las dos primeras concesiones del servicio de agua potable y desagüe cloacal en Argentina. Estas primeras concesiones se encuentran en la provincia de Corrientes y en la ciudad de Buenos Aires y localidades lindantes pertenecientes al Conurbano Bonaerense. Estas concesiones comenzaron su labor en septiembre 1991 y en mayo de 1992, respectivamente. Ambas han sido seguidas por otras concesiones provinciales que aún se encuentran en el proceso de desarrollo.
