aqueducts, Drainage systems, health standards, Government programs, Dominican Republic

In 1964 the government of the Dominican Republic inaugurated a program aimed at raising health standards. Drainage systems, garbage disposal plants, and aqueducts were built in all of the larger cities. Several government agencies were established for the purpose of increasing water facilities in rural and urban areas.

Government programs provide some health services, but the republic has no comprehensive system for welfare. The country had 793 inhabitants for every physician in 1999.
