Are there any particular health concerns? What is the quality of available medical care? What medical conditions typically require medical evacuation?

The water here is very hard, so people with eczema or other skin issues may have problems with that. Otherwise, none. Many things are now medevac'd out, as the Embassy no longer really has a health unit. A local doctor works with the embassy and comes in to staff the health unit, and he's great, but anything serious will be medevac'd out. - Oct 19, 2011
