Healthcare in Cyprus

Healthcare in Cyprus accounted for 5.8% of GDP in Cyprus in 2002 of which 51% came from private resources compared with an average of just 25% in the rest of the EU.[1]

Health indicators

In 2006, life expectancy for males was 79 and for females 82 years.[2] Infant mortality in 2002 was 5 per 1,000 live births, comparing favourably to most developed nations.[3]

A systematic population analysis of deaths in the adult population (ages 15–59) and released in 2010 in The Lancet place Cyprus as the country with the lowest mortality in females and 14th lowest mortality in males.[4][5]



Smoking rates in Cyprus are considered high by international standards. WHO Statistics from 1998 show that 38.5% of males were smokers.[6]
