I would like to do a brief presentation in Spanish about the health care system in Uruguay. It is a slightly expanded version of a speaking exercise from Intermediate Spanish II, dealing with Uruguay’s universal system of health care and insurance coverage. I will also make some brief comparisons with the current health care system in the United States, as well as some universal coverage systems from other major countries. I initially took interest in this topic because of the culture section of the chapter we were covering in class. Also, my major is sociology with a concentration in medical sociology, and I am currently taking the Sociology of Health and Health Care, so I have had the opportunity to further research the health care system in Uruguay in relation to those in other countries for a comparative analysis project.
