Senegal's healthcare system for foreigners

Senegal’s healthcare system has improved significantly in recent years. However, there are still disparities: doctors are mainly located in Dakar, so there are not enough doctors in the rest of the country.

In theory, medical assistance in public hospitals is free, but in practice you’ll have to pay in cash to get the care you need.

Foreigners are advised to contact the medical centers recommended by embassies, as the quality is often significantly higher there. What’s more, most doctors at embassy medical centers have international licenses to treat patients anywhere in the world. Many doctors were trained in France, and the quality of medical care and services is very high.

Do I need health insurance in Senegal?

Whether you’re a tourist or expatriate in Senegal, we strongly advise you to take out private Senegal insurance. Depending on the region of the country you live in, healthcare facilities are not all of the highest quality, and are often far removed from the European standards we are familiar with. That’s why it’s so important to take out insurance before you leave, so you don’t end up unprotected. Guarantees such as repatriation should be given priority so that you can be cared for in France or, in the event of an emergency, in an equipped and qualified facility in the region.
