NEW Venezuelan Doctors Are an Unexpected Boon for Latin America’s Poor

Bloomberg, (2019)


Over 22,000 medical professionals fled Venezuela from 2012-2017 and sought jobs in other Latin American countries. The influx of specialists in places like Chile, Argentina, Colombia, and Peru has helped address critical gaps in care—patients in poorer or rural communities wait months for specialty care and surgeries have years-long waiting lists. But a talent inflow isn’t a quick fix for stressed systems.

Declines in provision of basic services, such as childhood immunisation, malaria control, water, sanitation, and nutritional support, have led to increasing morbidity and mortality rates from an array of preventable diseases, including malaria, measles, and diphtheria. Secondary and tertiary care have also been greatly affected, due to declining investment, out-migration of providers, and spiralling hyperinflation that has driven the country and its people into poverty.1 As is so often, and so tragically, the case, the most affected populations have been the most vulnerable: infants and children, their mothers, the poor (now the great majority of the populations), and indigenous people
