Tunisia is a dynamic country with over 10 million people that sits at the top of the African continent. Tunisia has a high human development index and has close ties with the European Union – especially France. In 2011, an autocratic President was overthrown and the country has experienced free and fair elections. With it’s capital city Tunis leading the way to economic and political reform, the country’s diverse economy ranging from agriculture, mining, tourism and manufacturing has grown quite well in the past few years.
Health cover in Tunisia is managed by the “Caisse Nationale d’Assurance Maladie”. The welfare system in Tunisia is compulsory for the entire population, but expatriates are able to obtain global medical coverage through independent providers such as Expat Financial. The private sector offers high-quality cosmetic surgery and even spas to attract foreigners. The health system is reasonably efficient and effective despite limited resources. The private sector health system is more available in the major cities such as Tunis. Some expats will still want to seek medical care for serious medical conditions in Europe.
