Medical Care in Georgia
The privatisation of the Georgian health system has left the country with a low level of primary health care. A crisis in material and human resources continues to paralyse national health services. Access to care remains limited, despite government efforts to provide residents with free quality treatment. If you require treatment, the following medical centers are recommended: David Tatishvili Medical Centre, MediClub, Medx Medical Transports, or IMSS.
It is worth taking a personal pharmacy kit with you if visiting the country, including antibiotics and syringes as these are hard to access upon arrival.
To call for a medical assistance, dial 099.
