Healthcare infrastructure in Angola

Aug 11, 2020 | Angola

Angola is aiming to achieve 100% universal access to healthcare by 2030.

Angola has a population of almost 33 million. ABiQ predicts it will grow to 44.8 million by 2030. A growing population will need more resources and infrastructure, especially within the healthcare sector as the country aims to achieve universal access to healthcare by 2030.

Investment required for Healthcare 

Angola will require 84 new hospitals with an average of 200 beds per hospital.  To service these new hospitals 2,400 new physicians will have to be educated and trained over the next 10 years. That’s an increase of 36.4% over a period of 10 years.

With construction costs varying across the Central African region, we estimate each 200-bed hospital will cost in the range of $50 million. Based on these estimated values, Angola will require an investment of $4.2 billion to construct the 84 hospitals over the next 10 years.

Here is a table showing the expenditure (% of GDP as per 2017) on healthcare:
