Overview

As countries in Latin America continue to address the challenge of making their healthcare systems sustainable, the role of self-care has risen as an option to achieve significant savings and gains. Governments across the region signed the Sao Paulo Declaration on Self-Care, which recognizes the importance of self-care as a fundamental pillar of health and well-being and seeks to advance its practice as an essential component of Universal Health Coverage.

As part of its Healthcare Series, Council of the Americas hosts a panel discussion on the value of self-care policies, an overview of the opportunities and challenges for promoting self-care in Latin America, and shares areas for collaboration.
