This chapter focuses on palliative care in one Portuguese-speaking country (Brazil) and eighteen Spanish-speaking countries (Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela). The challenge for palliative care in Latin America is to develop a model of care appropriate to the sociocultural context and integrated to public health, including suitable policies, education, and implementation of palliative care programs to all levels of society.
