  • Gabon Health Insurance Information

The Gabonese Republic (or Republique Gabonnaise) is located in West Africa between the Cameroon, the Gulf of Guinea and the Republic of Congo. The country of Gabon has a surface of 270,000 square kilometer for a population of 1,500,000 people. Gabon’s biggest city is Libreville. From 1910 to 1960 Gabon belonged to French Equatorial Africa. Gabon economy is mostly based on Oil; however, Gabon’s oil reserve is decreasing and thus challenging the country to find alternative revenues before year 2025.

Healthcare in Gabon is mostly public with few Private Healthcare organizations. The most popular Private Hospital in Gabon is located in Lambarene and Gabon’s Healthcare facilities are widely regarded as being generally good compared to the rest of West Africa. Since the best Medical Facilities in Gabon are generally found within Private Hospitals an International Health Insurance will allow you to benefit from treatment in the medical facility of your choice wherever in Gabon. Gabon’s health system has an average of 30 physicians per 100,000 citizens and about 10% of residents do not have easy access to Medical Facilities. However, in the beginning of the 21st Century 30% of the inhabitants didn’t have access to safe drinking water. This situation leads to high development of diseases such as tuberculosis, intestinal worms, leprosy, polio or malaria.  Although some disease such tuberculosis benefited from efficient Children Immunization measures, other illness such as for instance Polio had less attention.  The medication and in general pharmaceuticals products are mostly mass produced in Libreville.

Women are generally less fertile than few decades ago and the mortality rate averages 18 per 100,000 citizens. The average life expectancy was about 55 years old in 2000.
Medical Data suggest that more than 5% of the total residents have AIDS/HIV. However, during the last decade the number of death from AIDS has been decreasing from about 20%.

In 2007, the Gabonese Government founded the Insurance and Social Welfare fund to cover jobless Nationals, low resources citizens, farmers and self-employed. Although low resources are the first to benefit from such measures, the Government wants to expand this Healthcare action to the rest of the population.
