Average life expectancy in Costa Rica has steadily increased, from 55 years in 1950 to 81 years today — far outpacing the U.S. Even more notable: the country has achieved this success while spending far less than the U.S. as a share of income. What’s behind Costa Rica’s remarkable success? How has its progress in health care improved its resilience? And what lessons can we learn for other nations? We’ll explore all that and more with our experts.
