Chile (which also by the way has 6 months post-natal leave)
The Chilean constitution guarantees rights to health protection.
Chileans can opt for public care or get coverage from private health insurance companies. Wealthier citizens can buy insurance from the Instituciones de Salud Previsional or obtain coverage through their employer. A 7% income tax funds the public health care system, the Fondo Nacional de Salud, according to an analysis of health care reform in Chile.
Public care includes free medical, dental and midwifery services, which are run locally. Private insurance tends to focus on specialist treatment.
The existence of both public-private insurance has created inequities of care, prompting reform efforts in 2000 to increase equality across the country.
Chile has guaranteed universal access to quality treatment for some conditions including certain cancers, HIV/AIDS, pneumonia, depression and dental care, which has improved care for the poor, according to the WHO.
