Rich in history and culture, Ethiopia is Africa’s oldest country. While the current government is reasonably stable, from 1974 to 1991, Ethiopia was involved with a civil war. In addition to this, Ethiopia also experienced several tragic droughts and famines, making it one of the poorest countries in Africa. In recent years, terrorist groups have been operating out of Ethiopia and surrounding regions.
Healthcare in Ethiopia
Unfortunately, access to quality medical care in Ethiopia is quite limited. Health systems and infrastructure are quite poor, especially in remote regions of the country. For expatriates in Ethiopia, there are some hospitals and clinics that various international health insurance companies have direct access agreements with – such as Bethzatha Hospital, British Embassy Clinic and Girum Hospital. It is highly recommended that expatriates who reside in Ethiopia obtain medical evacuation coverage as part of a comprehensive health plan offered through one of Expat Financial’s insurance providers.
