The government is investing in the health infrastructure by upgrading equipment and facilities while closing small rural hospitals. The public-private mix is changing with 150 private hospitals as well as private clinics. The quality of care in the private sector is mixed. The transition to a modern hospital system is still a work in progress with only a small number of hospitals able to provide specialist care.
