  • Health

    The Colombian health system stands out for having high levels of coverage, increases in life expectancy, and reductions in infant mortality, according to the Colombian Association of Clinics and Hospitals -ACHC-.

    It is also important to note that in the country it is possible to find cheaper international health services (between 50 and 70%) compared to costs in North America and Europe. Additionally, medical insurance is relatively less expensive in Colombia in relation to these same places.
