This table provides data on health care use of the population of the Caribbean Netherlands aged 15 years and older in private households. It includes contacts with providers of medical care, hospitalisation, visits to the laboratory for blood test and the use of medicines.

It comprises the following aspects:

  • contacts with general practitioner (GP)
  • contacts with medical specialists
  • contacts with dentist
  • contacts with physiotherapist/remedial therapist
  • hospitalisations, with and without overnight stay
  • visits to the laboratory for blood test
  • use of medicines, prescribed as well as non-prescribed

These aspects are shown for the Caribbean Netherlands, and also for the islands Bonaire, St Eustatius and Saba separately. Also breakdowns by gender, age and level of education are presented.

The research is a sample survey. This means that the figures shown are estimates for which reliability margins apply. These margins are also included in the table.

For the second time the Omnibus survey was carried out on Bonaire during the months of October and November 2017, and on Saba and St. Eustatius in the period January to March 2018. In 2021, the survey was conducted from October to December.
