The pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors in Chile are expected to post good growth in the long term, with many multinational companies looking to invest in the country. As of the first half of 2021, Chile had one of the fastest COVID-19 vaccination programs in the world, allowing the country to opt for removing many of the public health restrictions. The country is poised for stronger economic growth, and the government is looking to control healthcare costs by introducing drug pricing policies. 

The CENABAST Law (passed in January 2020) and the Drugs 2 bill are expected to profoundly impact the Chilean pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors. The CENABAST Law has allowed private pharmacy chains and independent pharmacies to purchase drugs through CENBAST. This has reduced drug acquisition costs by nearly 70 percent. The Drugs 2 bill continues to be under debate and facing major backlash from the pharmaceutical industry, with the main point of contention being the exact definition of the pricing formula. 

The Chilean pharmaceutical and healthcare industry remains an attractive sector for investors. Added to this, the commitment of the government to the continued expansion of public health services will ensure that the industry remains lucrative for companies and investors alike.
