This is a past event.

Thursday, November 1, 2018 at 6:00pm to 9:00pm

GL 220

Latin America is facing a great challenge coming from the aging population in the context of a crisis of care. The phenomenon raises the issue of developing new and more research on comparative social policies. Analysis of three of the oldest countries in the region: Cuba, Chile, and Uruguay will be discussed, along with comparisons of the legal regulations of care toward elderly people, the social policies and the programs and services offered to cover the needs of the aging population and their families.  Lessons and recommendations from the analysis will be presented. Event will be conducted in Spanish.
