Description of Health Service

Health services are provided through both the public and private sectors. Various aid agencies also provide public health service programmes. Responsibility for government-funded health care is shared between the Federal and State administrations. Theoretically, universal access is possible; however, limited resources and geographic disenfranchisement mean that there are large service gaps.
