View full report

This edition of the Social Panorama of Latin America discusses poverty from different angles, and in particular from amultidimensional perspective. This approach enables detailed analysis not only of the magnitude of poverty, but also of its intensity and its distinctive features in different groups, while also guiding the formulation of poverty reduction policies that dovetail better with comprehensive policies in support of well-being.

Chapters cover:

  • child poverty in Latin America and the Caribbean: a multidimensional, rights-based approach
  • commonly overlooked aspects of well-being—space, time and coexistence
  • social protection in Latin America: an up-to-date review of membership of health and pension systems
  • recent trends in social spending and economic, social and demographic considerations for health spending
