Medical Care in Comoros

The health system in Comoros is unequal throughout the nation and reflects its general underdevelopment of equipment and human resources. Recently, there has been a worrying deterioration in the health of the population. Some hospitals are in a fragile state such as El Maarouf, which offers a poor quality of care. In big cities such as Moroni, private clinics may be more reliable than public facilities, but in many circumstances, these operate without regulation.

Many drugs are not available from local pharmacies in Comoros. Also be aware that the sale and importation of available medication have not been subjected to serious control.

In order to access an ambulance, call 269 772 03 73.
