Kenya Expat Guide & Insurance Options for Expats
Despite being a developing country, Kenya has become a very popular destination for tourists expatriates coming from all over the world. Thanks to its picturesque beauty and astonishing wildlife, Kenya tourism industry has become essential to the country’s economy.
However, Kenya also has a long history of civil unrest and violent crimes which should not be ignored. Although many visitors travel safely into Kenya each year, threats of violent crimes and terrorist attacks are reported frequently.
The life expectancy at birth in Kenya has improved from a low of 45.2 years in the 1990s to an estimated 60 years by 2012 according to the World Health Organization. There are wide differences in health outlook for people in Kenya depending on socioeconomic status, gender and the geographic area. HIV/AIDS continues responsible for a high percentage of deaths along with Malaria. Road conditions are extremely poor, leading to traffic injuries and deaths. The provision of health and medical care services in Kenya is partly dependent on donors.
Basic primary care is provided at primary healthcare centers and dispensaries. Most expatriates will seek medical care in the various private medical facilities in the major cities. Generally, the best quality of care is found at national referral hospitals, which represent very good healthcare while providing diagnostic, therapeutic and rehabilitative services.
