Victoria Falls Zimbabwe, healthcare system and insurance coverage for expats

Zimbabwe is a landlocked country with the capital city Harare. Zimbabwe achieved independence from the UK in 1980 following 14 years under Rhodesia rule. The country has many languages and cultures, but English is widely spoken. Unfortunately, the country is ruled by President Robert Mugabe under an effectively one-party system where opposition groups have been marginalized. Despite the abundance of natural resources, the country’s economy has been badly run and continues to experience high unemployment.

Zimbabwe Healthcare System

Zimbabwe’s once-efficient medical system has been deteriorating as hospitals faces shortages of supplies, equipment and doctors. The badly run government and the economy have only worsened the weak medical system. While it is possible to seek private medical treatment, any serious medical disorders should be treated outside the country. Emergency medical evacuation coverage is recommended.
