This chapter describes health inequalities based on income, rather than explicitly race, in Chile and Uruguay. In these countries non-governmental organizations (NGOs) seeking to improve the health of the poor have historically had to work in direct opposition to the political power of repressive regimes. Today, both these countries are democratic, but healthcare for the poor still depends more on civil society than on governments.

Keywords:   Chile, Uruguay, health inequalities, NGOs, healthcare, civil society
