Abstract:
In this article, the health care system in the country of Costa Rica is critically analyzed. This analysis is performed in an effort to learn about the historical occurrences that led to the development of Costa Rica's' universal healthcare system. The current system, Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social, is analytically examined. Through this inspection, the problems that are currently being experienced by the country are noted and the missteps of the current leadership, and therefore the program itself, are exposed. Some ways to possibly remedy the challenges of the system are suggested, and practical changes are recommended. Interventions currently in play, as well as those that have been recently implemented are explained as well. Costa Rica's impact on the world stage is noted, and the lessons that the county has learned are suggested as a possible guide to other countries around the globe, whose healthcare systems may also be in flux.
