There are 4.6 doctors per 10,000 residents, two hospitals
with 136 and 50 beds respectively. The opportunities for
young people to emigrate to, for example, the United

have become increasingly limited, which has led to an
increase in youth unemployment.

invested in tourism to any great extent. The reason is bad
roads, ports and airports. With the help of foreign capital,
the country is trying to become attractive to tourists.
