Antigua and Barbuda

Social conditions

Public social insurance, which applies to all residents, covers the majority of health care costs and provides sickness benefits and pensions. However, the standard of care is low, and those who can afford fly to the United States for care. Unemployment was around 11 per cent in 2001, but due to emigration there is a shortage of labor in some sectors. Antigua and Barbuda are a major stopover for drug traffic to the United States, and drugs are a major problem, as are violence against women.
