Medical suppliesThe medical care provided by doctors and hospitals in Mauritius is above average, but is not as good as the average within the EU. The country provides 3.4 hospital beds per 1,000 inhabitants. The global mean here is 2.9 beds. Within the EU, 4.6 beds are available for every 1,000 residents.
With about 2,560 physicians in Mauritius, there are about 2.02 doctors per 1000 inhabitants. Here again the comparison: worldwide this standard is 1.50 physicians per 1,000 inhabitants and in the EU is 3.57.
Through medical care, the mortality rate of major known diseases can be reduced as far as possible. For example, only about 23 percent of all people who suffer from cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases or chylomicron retention disease (CRD) currently die.
