Medical Care in Moldova

Medical care is very limited throughout Moldova, even in the capital Chisinau. Medical equipment is not in line with international standards.

If you require medication, be aware that it is difficult to find a well-stocked pharmacy with well-regulated drugs. Therefore, it is essential to take a first aid kit with you, especially if you plan to visit rural areas.

Ambulance services are reached by dialling 903. Paramedics in Moldova are able to provide first aid to patients. However, serious medical problems require evacuation to another country.
