Medical Care in Georgia

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 CentreMediClubMedx 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.
