Czech women visit doctors more often than Czech men, survey suggests

According to data published by the Institute of Health Information and Statistics of the Czech Republic, Czech women visit doctors considerably more often than men. The study, which is based on a population sample of over 2000 people, suggests that Czech women visit general practitioners and dentists one and a half times as often as men. As far as visits to specialists are concerned, the gap is even more pronounced: women see specialists more than twice as often as men do. Mortality rates for cancer, heart attacks, and strokes are higher for Czech men than for Czech women.
