In 1998, the Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO) requested countries in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) to submit country profiles based on the "Guidelines for the Preparation of Health System Profiles for the Countries of the LAC Region." Such profiles were prepared by health sector national teams and submitted to peer review by recognized national academic Public Health institutions.

The Health Sector Reform Regional Analysis that follows includes information from 36 countries that submitted profiles by the end of 2003 and seeks to consolidate, compare and examine the similarities, differences and especially the progress countries have made in health sector reform (HSR). The content of this document, prepared by PAHO/WHO, is based exclusively on information reported by the countries National Health Authorities in their respective health systems profiles.
