Namibia health care

Namibia has both public and private healthcare providers and mobile clinics in remote locations. There are big differences between public and private healthcare facilities: private hospitals and clinics are far more sophisticated and better staffed, while public facilities, which serve the majority of the population, are often understaffed and aren’t able to offer all healthcare services such as organ transplants and dialysis. Travellers are advised to only use private healthcare services for which you will usually need to pay yourself and afterwards claim back from your travel insurance.
