  • Health System

    The public health service in Mauritius is free. There are eight private clinics on the islands, four public hospitals and many well-stocked pharmacies.
    Reforms in the health sector were announced in the 2003/2004 Budget including the reorganisation of public health care delivery, the introduction of a 24-hour family doctor service, expansion of high-tech medical services, and greater emphasis on health promotion and preventative medicine.
    Other developments in the sector include the construction of a new hospital on the site of Dr Jeetoo Hospital; construction of a new Outpatient Department at Victoria Hospital; completion of a new psychiatric hospital at Brown Sequard; purchase of new high-tech equipment; and the recruitment of additional doctors, nurses, health care assistants, midwives, and other support staff. The government is also allocating Rs2 million for the reintroduction of Ayurvedic and other traditional medicines in government hospitals on a pilot basis. (accessed 22/04/09).
