The British Embassy Santiago, together with the Chile Chevening Scholars Alumni Association, hosted a seminar at the British Ambassador’s residence entitled “The Chilean Healthcare System: Challenges and Possible Reforms.” The event was lead by guest speaker Sebastian Pavlovic, Superintendent of Health, who provided insights on the current healthcare system in Chile as well as what future plans are in store.

After Mr. Pavlovic´s presentation, the Chevening Alumni in attendance, several of whom are currently working in the healthcare sector, were able to share their own thoughts and ideas by participating in a large group discussion.

During the seminar, Ambassador Fiona Clouder gave the following words of welcome:

I would like to welcome everyone to the first of three seminar sessions organised by Chevening Chile Alumni Association together with the British Embassy in Santiago.

These seminars aim to engage Chile Chevening scholars in the broad debate that is taking place in Chile regarding the new public policy reforms. Today’s seminar focuses on the topic “The Chilean Healthcare System: Challenges and Possible Reforms”. Health is one of the most important issues facing all our societies.

I would like to thank Mr. Sebastián Pavlovic, Superintendent of Health, for being here today as the invited speaker and we look forward to hearing his insights on the current healthcare system as well as what future plans are in store.

As for the Chevening scholars present, especially for those of you who have academic and professional experience in the healthcare sector, I hope that you can also share your thoughts and ideas on this important topic.
