Availability & Cost of Healthcare

There are modern, private health care clinics and hospitals in Brazzaville and Pointe-Noire. If you become seriously ill anywhere in Congo, head immediately to either city for treatment. Prices are unsurprisingly high in these establishments, so it's essential you have full medical insurance that is valid in Congo.

Tap Water

It is not safe to drink tap water in Congo. Always drink bottled water (and check the seal is not broken) or the boiled water that some hotels will leave in your room.
