Overview of the health system in Cambodia
The war that lasted until 1975 left traces throughout the country. The health system has been affected a lot. Cambodia has a public health system but without much means. Nevertheless, the private health sector is in full development under the supervision of the Ministry of Health. The people of Cambodia have little confidence in their public health system. So when they can, he prefers to choose the private sector, to have access to quality care.
Should we take health insurance in Cambodia?
The possibility of repatriation
Even if the country is growing economically, injured or sick foreigners are often forced to be transported to other countries to gain access to necessary care. Currently, public health facilities are, for the most part, not up to international standards. It is therefore important to have insurance that supports repatriation to be treated effectively.
Whether you are a traveler, a foreign student or an expatriate, we advise you to take out private Cambodia health insurance. Cambodia has many health risks, so being insured is essential. Moreover, as seen above, the conditions in the public sector leave something to be desired. A consultation in the private sector has an average of € 60 which is accessible but if you self-insure, you may not have access to professional cash.
