Côte d’Ivoire is commonly known as Ivory Coast and is a small country located in Western Africa. This country is home to an increasing number of expatriates and is a leading producer of cocoa and excellent coffee. The economy has been developing quite quickly lately because of the telecommunications and professional services portions of the economy. The country is mostly flat with very few mountains and has approximately 20 million people. Most people there speak French, which is the official language – but there are still many who speak English.
Healthcare in Côte d’Ivoire
As you would expect, the health facilities in Côte d’Ivoire are generally basic, but there are some good facilities located in Abidjan. It is important that expatriates contact their medical provider to see which medical facilities are in their network. There are both private and public systems in the country. Most expats will want to access private care in one of the city centres. There are some good pharmacies in the city centres as well, but you should make sure that the medication you are being provided is valid and correct. Most severe medical conditions would require medical evacuation. We can source global health coverage for some local nationals in this country via the Allianz plan we offer.
