Social Security system, infant mortality, life expectancy, hospital system, dependents

Most of Panama’s social services are administered by the Social Security system, founded in 1941. It provides retirement and disability pensions for most workers, lifelong health care, and payments for dependents. The hospital system works well, and Panama has relatively good health statistics: life expectancy of 76 years, 1 physician per 715 inhabitants, and infant mortality of 20 per 1,000 live births. A number of private charities also provide assistance to the poor.
