In recent years, Angola has grown in popularity as a destination for expats in search of adventure and generous salary packages. However, the country bears the reputation of having poor public healthcare services. Angola’s healthcare system comprises two sectors: public and private. While treatment at state hospitals and clinics comes at no cost, the standards are low, and the majority of the population still has extremely limited access to medical care.
The country’s best hospitals are found in the capital city of Luanda. However, even those are usually not up to the standards that many expats would be accustomed to. Most medical staff in Angola speak Portuguese and, because of the high number of Cuban medical professionals in the country, expats may also be able to find Spanish-speaking doctors, but English speakers are few.
