What are medical services in Peru like?

When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Peru, they replied:

"The availability of medications is very dependent on what it is. Until COVID an expat friend had an insulin pump she was able to get what she needed to ensure its proper functioning. I was able to get any meds the local doctor prescribed, but not one my US doctor had. Our insurance let me buy a year's worth at a time to compensate for that," said an expat in Arequipa.
