The Dominican Republic occupies two thirds of Hispaniola, making it the second largest archipelago in the Antilles. It is located to the west of Puerto Rico and to the east of Cuba and Jamaica, sharing the island with Haiti.

The current healthcare system in the Dominican Republic is governed by General Health Law 42-01 and Law 87-01, both enacted in 2001. Since the implementation of these laws, the country has made significant advancements as it relates to providing improved care and increasing coverage for the most economically vulnerable members of its society - gains largely associated with the gradual decentralization of medical services that has taken place. As a result of reform, the number of ensured poor increased from 513,416 in December of 2006 to 735,052 in June of 2007 - an increase of 43% (Análisis del Desempeño Económico y Social de la República Dominicana, January - June 2007).
