On June 23rd-24th, Chinese President Xi Jinping will (virtually) chair the 14th BRICS Summit, gathering leaders from Russia, Brazil, India, and South Africa.

The question is how to reconcile the need for health care reform with little fiscal space and high levels of debt in Latin America. We talk about the old quarrel between health and money.
