A new edition of PAHO Health in the Americas 2017 indicates that Chile has progressed in living and health conditions, which has allowed the population to have a life expectancy at birth of 80 years for men and 85 for women. Between 1990 and 2014, maternal mortality has declined from 39.9 to 22.2 deaths per 100 000 live births, and in children under 1 year of age has remained stable (7 deaths per 1 000 live births in the last seven years ).
In addition, the report indicates that in 2015, financial resources were destined for health, close to 7.7% of GDP, of which 46.1% were allocated to public expenditure and 33% to out-of-pocket expenses. Per capita health consumption in 2014 was US $ 1,877.
