SHORT INFORMATION

Healthcare in Zambia

The general state of healthcare in Zambia is poor. Although there are adequate private health facilities in Lusaka, the public health system remains heavily underfunded, and many expats requiring serious medical attention will find themselves evacuated to another country, such as South Africa, where there are better medical facilities. It’s essential that expats have a comprehensive health insurance policy before moving to Zambia.
