What should be done with FONASA and ISAPRES.

For people, without exception, having health care coverage according to the needs that arise at different times of life, is one of the most important priorities, and from the point of view of public policy, it is one of the most valid indicators for both executive and parliamentary management. This policy direction is not ambiguous, nor does it have explicit detractors.

Regarding professional capacities, there are doctors (nationals and migrants), nurses, health technicians, and non-professional support staff with vast experience.

There are universities with high-quality careers for new generations of professionals and technicians.

Regarding infrastructure, we have public and private facilities with proven coverage capacity (COVID-19 pandemic). We have a primary health care system with years of experience in prevention and health control—the network of clinical and pharmaceutical laboratories.

Another gigantic network is that of pharmacies with their supply centers. The State contributes 18% of its total annual budget in terms of funding. The workers contribute 7% of their monthly wages and the employers pay for accident insurance.

So, today we say unequivocally, that what is needed is to prioritize health and abandon the logic that benefits are a market product. We need to implement an integrated health system, for everyone who needs it, without differences of any kind.

This can be done today, and people know it. Party politics must abandon the logic of privileged groups, and stop voting in favor of criminal organizations, unbelievably facilitating the theft of people’s money, even though the Supreme Court has already condemned them to reimburse those monies.

The complex problems of the national economy are solved by putting the daily needs of the people’s lives, namely work, health, education, and housing, above all other variables.
