Abstract: 
Health at a Glance: Latin America and the Caribbean 2020 compares key indicators for population health and health systems across the 33 LAC countries. It builds on the format used in other editions of Health at a Glance, including the versions for the OECD member and partner countries, and the regional editions for Asia-Pacific and Europe. It presents comparable data on health status and its determinants, health care resources and activities, health expenditure and financing, and health care quality, along with selected health inequality indicators. This is the first LAC regional edition of Health at a Glance and was prepared jointly by the OECD Health Division in the Directorate for Employment, Labour and Social Affairs and the World Bank, led by Cristian A. Herrera from the OECD Health Division and Tomás Plaza-Reneses from the World Bank, with close collaboration from Gabriel Di Paolantonio from the OECD Health Division.
The production of Health at a Glance: Latin America and the Caribbean 2020 would not have been possible without the contribution from LAC countries that either provided data directly to the OECD or the World Bank, or supplied the data contained in this publication to other international organisations, such as the Pan American Health Organisation or the World Health Organization. After a revision round of the publication’s draft with LAC countries, we acknowledge the responses and comments received from Belize, Colombia, Costa Rica and Mexico. The authors wish to thank the valuable inputs and support received from Frederico Guanais, Deputy Head of the OECD Health Division, and Michele Gragnolati from the World Bank. The report benefited from thorough comments and suggestions from Ian Forde, Aakash Mohpal and Jeremy Veillard from the World Bank. From the OECD, we acknowledge the contributions from Stefano Scarpetta, Mark Pearson, Francesca Colombo, Rie Fujisawa and Niek Klazinga from the Directorate for Employment, Labour and Social Affairs, from Sebastian Nieto, Paula Cerutti and Juan Vazquez from the LAC Unit of the Development Centre, and the support from Jose Antonio Ardavin from the Division for LAC of the Global Relations Secretariat. We thank Claudia Allemani and Michel Coleman for their comments on the cancer survival section. Lucy Hulett (OECD) helped with the formatting and editing of the publication.

Abstract: 
En este documento presentado por la Comisión Económica para América Latina y el Caribe (CEPAL) a los Estados miembros en su trigésimo octavo período de sesiones, se sostiene que América Latina y el Caribe puede avanzar hacia un “gran impulso para la sostenibilidad” basado en una combinación de políticas económicas, industriales, sociales y ambientales que estimulen una reactivación con igualdad y sostenibilidad y relancen un nuevo proyecto de desarrollo en la región.
El documento se organiza en cinco capítulos. En el primero, se estudian las tres crisis (lento crecimiento, creciente desigualdad y emergencia ambiental) que afectan las economías y las sociedades a nivel mundial y las de América Latina y el Caribe. En el segundo, se presenta un marco para analizar estas crisis de manera integrada y dimensionar su magnitud en la región. En el tercero, se examinan los impactos cuantitativos sobre el crecimiento, las emisiones, la distribución del ingreso y el sector externo en distintos escenarios de política, destacándose el potencial de las combinaciones de políticas para forjar una senda de crecimiento más dinámica, con menores emisiones y mayor igualdad. En el cuarto, se identifican siete sectores que pueden impulsar el desarrollo sostenible y se proponen líneas de política para fomentarlos. En el quinto, se concluye con un análisis que articula las políticas macroeconómicas, industriales, sociales y ambientales, y el papel del Estado en la construcción de consensos para su implementación.

Abstract: 
Latin American and Caribbean countries continue to face challenges in designing and enforcing public policies that promote good governance and inclusive societies. Along with difficult economic conditions, such setbacks to previous progress have spurred declining levels of trust in public institutions. In order to sustain inclusive growth, Latin American and Caribbean countries need to continue implementing public sector reforms that promote fairness for all.
Government at a Glance 2020: Latin America and the Caribbean presents internationally comparable indicators of public governance practices and reforms, showing how these reforms are implemented and what results they achieve. The indicators allow the benchmarking of best practices in the LAC region and against OECD countries and indicate areas that need attention and improvement if countries are to achieve outcomes such as increased trust in government.
