Relatively small in size, the Gambia is a West African country located between Senegal with narrow access to the Atlantic ocean. Regardless of its size, the Gambia is well equipped with a diverse and influential ecosystem, consisting of abundant wildlife, beautiful scenic views and some coastal towns. Although the Gambia has maintained a relatively stable political stance over the years, this stability has not translated into prosperity. The country still struggles to meet the standards of well-developed countries, and this ultimately has a negative effect on the ability to develop an adequate healthcare system.
Healthcare in the Gambia
Healthcare in the Gambia is classified into 3 separate categories – primary, secondary and tertiary. Overall, healthcare facilities are relatively scarce throughout the country – regardless of what level of care you are hoping to seek. Due to this disparity, it is extremely important to obtain adequate international healthcare insurance as an expatriate – as the chances of you needing medical evacuation or tertiary care can be quite high.
