<b>Cape Verde has very limited health facilities:</b>

- The state run hospitals are very oldfashioned, health equipment is very little, or non existent.

- The few private hospitals on Sal and Santiago are a little better but still also very limited.

- Pharmacies have very reduced offer for medication

- Mobile facilities as ambulances are not even equipped with the basic things as oxigen supply, ECG, etc.

- Helicopters or airplanes for rescue tasks do not exist on the entire archipelago
