Healthcare in Guyana
Guyanese Government ensures that the people are provided with good healthcare in both the public and private sectors. The government-funded public healthcare system in Guyana is well distributed throughout the country and is available for foreigners and nationals. The Guyanese Ministry of Health ensures that quality, reliable public health organizations and medical health clinics are easily accessible and available for the majority of residents in Guyana and are constantly improving their healthcare system for the welfare of the people.
Food and Social Culture
Daily life in Guyana revolves around family groups; notably, the matriarchal family among Afro-Guyanese contrasts with the patriarchal South Asian family. Daily dress normally does not differentiate one group from another. Guyana’s cuisine includes a perfect blend of South American, Asian, and Chinese dishes that make liberal use of fiery locally grown chilies and fresh tropical fruits and vegetables. A typical Guyanese dish is a pepperpot, a stew made of meat (contains usually beef, mutton, or pork), potatoes, and peppers laced with cassareep (a sauce concocted from cassava juice and spices).
