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

Yes, especially malaria. The quality of health care is very poor. You medically evacuate to have babies, if you break a leg, etc. You do not want to get seriously ill in Togo. - Sep 27, 2017
Embassy medical care. We went to one private clinic that was ok. In general, it's best to leave Togo if a serious medical situation develops. - Aug 13, 2015
None that I know of. Local medical care is quite good. - May 29, 2014
yes, malaria- very dangerous here, diarrhea - almost every US employee have it at least one time in a year, we call it Togobelly, not fun at all. - Mar 27, 2011
