Life in Ecuador

• The Republic of Ecuador is a constitutional state of rights and social justice. The government manages the country in a decentralised fashion.

• Ecuador’s Constitution states that children are obliged to attend school until they have received what the government believes to be a basic level of education. In layman’s terms, this means until the age of nine. From then on, children are free to seek employment. There are many who have provided research and data which states that Ecuador offers the worst level of education across the whole of Latin America.

• Ecuador’s public health care system was first put in place in 1967. The Ministry of the Public Health is responsible for regulating the system, the health policies and care plans offered to the public. The Ministry of Public Health in Ecuador is most interested in offering a public health care system which provides social support to the most vulnerable. It develops plans around the ideas of communitarian health and focuses on making preventive medicine available.
