Tanzania Health

Tanzania offers breath-taking landscapes, fascinating wildlife and tranquil lakes. Though local culture can be quite different from Western norms, the adjustment is often significantly eased by the typically friendly and welcoming attitude of Tanzanians. Most expats moving to Tanzania do so to work in industries such as construction, tourism and agriculture, or as part of a corporate move within their existing company. There are a number of humanitarian projects based within the country and these also draw expats from around the world. Unfortunately, the quality of medical care in the country is generally low, and expats will likely need to make arrangements for a comprehensive private international health insurance plan.

Medical assistance can be hard to find in Tanzania, particularly outside of major cities. Inadequate funding plagues the country's public health system with the result that the available facilities, staff and resources aren't adequate to accommodate Tanzania's growing population. Expats working in the public sector are automatically signed up for the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF), which allows access to public healthcare. Because of the low quality of care at government hospitals and clinics, most expats avoid using public healthcare facilities even if they have access via the NHIF.

Please consult your doctor regarding health measures, vaccinations and components of your first aid kit. Viva Africa Tours is not liable that the listed vaccinations are complete; rather, these are guidelines. In general, the following vaccinations are recommended for Tanzania: In addition to your primary vaccination (Diphtheria, Tetanus, Polio, Whooping Cough) you should get vaccinated against Hepatitis A and Typhoid. Further vaccinations recommended are Hepatitis B; Rabies; Cholera and Yellow Fever.

Please inform yourself about the different Malaria Prophylaxis medicine, which is recommended throughout the whole year for all areas below 1800m. Visitors from countries with yellow fever must also present a valid yellow fever vaccination upon arrival. If you are planning a trip to Zanzibar from the Tanzanian mainland, you must also have a valid Yellow Fever vaccination.
