COVID-19 Health Services Disruption Surveys in LAC

COVID-19 Health Services Disruption Survey 2020: This survey focused on the level of disruption to the delivery of general health services. The survey covered i) a pre-pandemic period of December–February prior to the critical stage of the pandemic, and ii) a pandemic period of March–July 2020. The analysis focused on identifying the % of people who were unable to access health services during the pandemic, and on identifying the conditions/diseases/problems that were left unattended due to this disruption. The Latin American and Caribbean countries included in this survey are: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Trinidad and Tobago, Uruguay and Venezuela. This survey series was developed specifically to assess the change in levels of service delivery prior to, and immediately following, the onset of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Data generated from these surveys are not intended to be used as overall estimates of the levels of health service delivery. For more information and the survey database, see:
