2014-04-21 18:55:04 - Colombia Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare Report Q3 2013 - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
The World Health Organization (WHO)´s recent adjustment to Colombia´s historical healthcare expenditure highlights the government´s efforts to contain costs and the greater-than-expected financial difficulties affecting the country´s private healthcare reforms. We forecast relatively strong growth in Colombia´s public healthcare spending, as the cost of healthcare provision escalates and demand increases for drugs and services under the Obligatory Health Plan (POS). The country´s private healthcare sector will grow at a much lower rate, as there is no indication to show that the financial troubles plaguing Colombian private insurers are diminishing.
