Cameroon in detail

Health & insurance

Zika virus is endemic in Cameroon. Avoid getting pregnant if you are visiting the country. There is a high risk of malaria, so protect yourself against bites and take antimalarials.

Health Insurance

Full health insurance is recommended: if you have serious healthcare issues evacuation to the UK or South Africa will be necessary.

Availabilty & Cost of Healthcare

Healthcare in Cameroon is not good quality, and there is little in the way of emergency care. Funds or insurance need to cover the cost of possible repatriation.

Tap Water

Tap water is not drinkable in Cameroon. Be careful also to avoid iced drinks. Buy bottled water, use a purifier or drink boiled water.
