Visiting the Doctor

Moroccans were asked how often they visit a health care provider or family doctor. Very few men or women reported that they go to the doctor for annual check-ups or preventative care (5%). As illustrated in Figure 6, more than four times as many men as women never go to the doctor (9% of men and 2% of women).

Figure 7 shows  that women with low levels of income adequacy are much less likely than higher income women to visit  doctors for preventative care and at early stages of illness.

Figures 8 and 9 show the responses of Moroccans who were asked, “Thinking back to the last time you were sick, did you consult a doctor?”
