Healthcare

The healthcare system in El Salvador is divided into public and private sectors. El Salvador’s citizens have access to the public healthcare system at no cost, while foreigners must pay for services at public facilities or purchase health insurance to be used in private hospitals. Most private clinics and hospitals are concentrated in El Salvador’s major cities and provide excellent care. However due to the cost, they serve a very small percentage of the population. In recent years, the public healthcare system has struggled to cope with demand and provide adequate care, so President Bukele has made healthcare reform a major part of his platform.
