Health for All
Healthcare in Equatorial Guinea is a right afforded to all and protected by the national constitution. Through long-running initiatives and integration with the Horizon 2020 goals, the government has re-affirmed that healthcare is a pillar of socio-economic development in the country.
Basic indicators show an improving picture: Infant mortality dropped from 111 to 65 per thousand from 1994 to 2011. Qualified healthcare workers now attend 70 percent of births in the country and 91.3 percent of women receive professional pre-natal care. The government provides hospitals, clinics and health centers across the country.
Initiatives such as free drugs and vaccines, better reproductive healthcare and better infrastructure, including water and sanitation, have raised the quality of life for Equatoguineans over the last 20 years. To make sure that more equitable access to services can be provided and to improve overall services, the government looks to private sector partners.
