Since its political reform in the early 1990s, Albania has improved significantly in areas such as health and justice –however medical care outside of Tirana is very limited due to the lack of medical specialists and supplies. In recent years, the country has become known as a tourist destination. Being a coastal Mediterranean country, Albania is the destination for 4.2 million visitors each year.

Although Tirana has many healthcare facilities, basic health requirements are still developing in most parts of Albania. Since the collapse of socialism, the healthcare system has been on a steady decline.

With a life expectancy of 77.96, Albania is currently ranked 60th in the world. To know about healthcare system in Albania check out our healthcare region page.
