Description Clinical management in Peru is overseen by the Ministry of Health (MINSA), which is the government institution responsible for ensuring citizens’ right to health. In the face of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Peruvian health system has been highly impacted, due to its limited ability to provide an efficient response, and given shortfalls in terms of resources and the inadequate training of clinical and hospital staff. These factors are the result of low budget allocation to the sector, which makes the need for more investment and financial support by the government an urgent necessity. The challenges posed by the pandemic have resulted in efforts to modernize and implement basic hospital care capable, at least, of serving the most vulnerable sectors of the population. However, in order to achieve efficiency and sustainability, the Peruvian health system will need to implement improvements in the clinical and administrative management of its health centers, as well as improving waste management. The pandemic in Peru has led to new challenges for clinical management and highlighted the need for modernization, and a greater contribution in the form of taxes will be required in order to provide basic health services and to cope with the Covid-19 pandemic.
La gestión clínica en el Perú está liderada por el Ministerio de Salud (Minsa), que es el ente rector que debe velar por el derecho a la salud de los ciudadanos ante la pandemia de la covid-19. Este sistema sanitario ha sido abatido por la poca capacidad de dar respuesta eficiente, debido a la falta de capacitación y recursos en el personal clínico y hospitalario. Esto es producto de la poca asignación del presupuesto al sector, que hace muy necesaria una mayor inversión y asignación económica por parte del Gobierno. Los retos del momento han resultado en esfuerzos por la modernización e implementación básica de los centros hospitalarios para atender al menos a las poblaciones más vulnerables. Sin embargo, a fin de llegar a la eficiencia y sostenibilidad, el sistema sanitario peruano necesita poner en marcha la mejora de la gestión clínica y administrativa de sus centros, así como la gestión de los residuos. La pandemia en el Perú sugiere nuevos retos a la gestión clínica como la modernización, y demanda mayor contribución en la recaudación de impuestos para brindar los servicios básicos de salud y hacer frente a la pandemia de la covid-19.
