  • Senegal Health Insurance Information


The Republic of Senegal is situated in Western Africa, between the Atlantic Ocean, Mali and Guinea-Bissau. Senegal has a surface of almost 200,000 square kilometer a population of 14 million people. The official language is French although, the main local language is Wolof. It is therefore easy to speak in French with most citizens in Senegal. The main reason French is widespread among the population is to be found in historic French presence in Senegal; starting in 1960 Senegal has gained its independence. The Climate in Senegal is a Tropical climate with two main seasons that are either rainy or dry. The city capital of Senegal is Dakar.

On the subject of Healthcare, Senegal Hospitals and in general local medical facilities have difficulties to cope with the needs of the inhabitants. The reason for this situation stems in the difference between medical facilities in Senegal and the population in need of healthcare services. As a result waiting period for doctor visits is generally long. Unfortunately the lack of medical facilities is worsened by an insufficient number of doctors and specialist. With an average of 6 doctors for 100,000 people and inadequate training, citizens as well as visitors may face difficulties to find adequate medical advice. This is especially the case in rural zones as physicians tend to prefer working in cities. Rural zones are also generally difficult to access as they lack proper infrastructures.

Given the Healthcare situation in Senegal we recommend travelers to choose a suitable International Health Insurance plan with both Emergency Evacuation and Repatriation option before they visit Senegal in case a major accident or disease occurs. Before you travel to Senegal it is recommended you take adequate medicines against malaria and tropical fever. At night it is suitable to sleep with a bed net to prevent Mosquito during the night. During the day we recommend wearing adequate clothes to reduce inset threats.

Regarding vaccinations in Senegal it is suitable to be vaccinated against several diseases such as for instance Hepatitis or tetanus. In all cases it is strongly recommended to consult your doctor   prior to departure to have professional advice.
