Morocco Health

Health care services in Morocco have evolved in line with the country’s epidemiological transition, facilitated by heightened surveillance of health-related conditions and the maturing role carried out by the private sector. Developments have tracked objectives outlined in the country’s long-term strategy, Vision 2020. In its 2012-16 phase, reforms have aimed primarily at consolidating past gains but also addressing new needs, with a particular focus on restructuring emergency services, promoting family medicine, developing rural health care, extending national coverage schemes and developing human resources. Broader health coverage and the gradual expansion of medical services bode well for the future of the sector. The challenge that lies ahead is to ensure even distribution of facilities and medical staff as demand for health services rises.
