Situated on the coast of West Africa, Liberia is a developing country with a lot of crime and health concerns. Although there are risks of theft and violent crimes within Monrovia, the capital city, the risk dramatically increases when travelling outside. Monrovia continues to struggle maintaining electricity and running water. Most expats and companies in Liberia will find that corruption is rife and unemployment and illiteracy are commonplace. The country has just over 4 million people.
Healthcare in Liberia
If traveling to Monrovia, it would be advisable to get evacuation insurance as there are limited supplies for hospitals in the case of an emergency. As of 2014, Liberia has also become a high-risk country for exposure to the Ebola virus; getting the proper immunizations and having the right Liberia expat insurance plans is essential if you intend on travelling to Liberia anytime soon. If you become seriously injured or sick in Liberia, it will be advisable to obtain treatment in Europe or South Africa.
