How are healthcare services in Peru?
When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Peru, they replied...
"Healthcare services in Peru are provided by both public and private institutions. The public healthcare system is funded by the government and is available to all citizens and legal residents. The quality of public healthcare varies depending on the region, but generally it is considered to be of a lower standard than private healthcare. Foreign residents are able to access the public healthcare system, but they may need to pay for some services. Expats in Peru generally use the public healthcare system, as it is more affordable than private healthcare. However, some expats opt to purchase private health insurance to access higher quality care," said another in Peru.
