Quality of Medical Care

Yemeni women rate their health care as higher quality than do men. A quarter of men rate their medical care as bad, and 9% rate it as very bad, compared to 11% and 4% of women respectively. More women than men also rate their care as good quality (32% vs. 19%) (not shown). Neither men nor women receive very good quality care however – only 4% of women and 2% of men rate it as such (not shown).

Figure 8 shows that across all levels of household income, the majority of women say they receive either good or average care.
