Affordability of Medical Care - Morocco
The survey asked respondents about the affordability of different forms of medical care. Figure 10 compares men’s and women’s responses, and Figure 11 shows women’s responses by region.
- Significantly more women than men said that they could afford regular medical visits and medications that they need (58% of women and 34% of men).
- More than one-quarter of men (26%) said that they cannot afford medical care, which is more than three times the rate that women report (8%).
- Almost seven in ten urban-dwelling women (69%) report being able to afford regular medical visits and necessary medications, compared to only 44% of rural-dwelling women.
- Women living in rural areas are more than three times as likely as urban women to say that they cannot afford medical care at all (14% of rural residents and 4% of urban residents).
