"The detailed analysis presented in this book enriches its proposals and policy recommendations, which are based on policies that have been adopted in the region, which are specific and realistic, and prioritize instruments and feasible objectives over ideal systems or the "blackboard" model to be implemented from scratch. Thanks to this eminently practical approach, the book makes an important contribution to policies designed to achieve universal coverage of assistance for the elderly in Latin America and the Caribbean."
