Morocco Health

Although total expenditure on health per capita has stayed fairly constant in Morocco, advances have been made to improve the provision and delivery of health care. A 2011 constitutional amendment enshrined access to health care as a basic right, with increasing amounts of public financing going towards expanding health services, although work remains to extend coverage to uninsured segments of the population. The country has also made significant headway in reducing both maternal and child mortality rates. Alongside an epidemiological shift away from infectious diseases, increased longevity and changes in lifestyle mean that around 75% of deaths in Morocco today are related to chronic diseases, presenting both challenges and opportunities for the sector in the coming decades.
