Abstract: En el presente capítulo se revisan algunos antecedentes y desarrollos recientes del sistema de salud chileno. En primer término, se lleva a cabo un repaso de los principales períodos e hitos históricos de las políticas de salud en Chile. Posteriormente, se revisa el contexto epidemiológico y demográfico en Chile y se compara con el caso de Colombia, en relación a indicadores relevantes como la esperanza de vida, el envejecimiento de la población y los gastos en salud. En tercer lugar, se profundizará en la realidad actual de las políticas de salud chilenas. Por último, se analizará cómo es posible priorizar el sistema de salud de una forma justa, legítima y sustentable.
