So I've been in the US all my life, moved to a country which is considered to be one of the poorest in the world. So my friend did something stupid and hit his head. He definitely required stitches, we went to a clinic where the doctor applied local anesthetic, stitched him up, gave him something for the pain. The doctor then got my friend's address and sent someone from the clinic to check on him the next day, 10 days later the stitches were removed. total cost: $6 I thought it was interesting that in such a country health care is so much easier to get than the US. what do you all think?
