A statistical survey of health facilities and households in Luanda and Uíge has confirmed that strong inequalities persist between provinces in the availability of basic health services. Large differences are observed also in health workers’ performance in diagnosing common illnesses, and there is high risk of mismanagement of patients, especially in Uíge. The overall utilization of health services is high, but low utilization of delivery services is reported in Uíge. Many households rate the quality of health services as low or very low.
