Strengthening health sector management in Valle del Cauca

About project

The General Healthcare Social Security System in Colombia -SGSSS for its acronym in Spanish- has attained substantial progress in the areas of healthcare protection, coverage, access to services, equity, and financial protection to households. Nevertheless, significant challenges still remain with regard to healthcare quality, patient flow, system’s legitimacy, and transparency in the allocation and use of resources provided to the healthcare sector.
