Health System Reform in Ecuador

In 2008, Ecuador’s Constitution recognized the right to health with an integrated vision that considers health vital to the exercise of other human rights. To accommodate this vision, and the increase in demand for health services, Ecuador initiated a comprehensive reform of its health system.

This special issue of the Pan American Journal of Public Health examines Ecuador’s recent experience in health system reform through a series of articles on specific areas that have undergone major transformations. The articles present the accomplishments and remaining challenges while encouraging health leaders in other countries to implement the changes their health systems need to advance toward universal health.
