Mbabane - Post Report Question and Answers

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

No trauma services in the country. Also, I have never seen a dentist here, and with the high prevalence of HIV, it's just a risk I don't need to take. Mbabane clinic is fine for ear infections, etc. - Oct 2019

The healthcare in Swaziland is pretty mediocre. There are some good doctors at the clinics, but it really depends on who you see. The healthcare in South Africa is top notch, though. - Mar 2015

We have a good GP that we see, and I think the other doctors at the private clinic are probably good. You will be medevac'd to South Africa for anything serious, where the medical care is top notch. We had our baby in Pretoria and were extremely happy with the care we received. - Feb 2011

The medical care here is very poor and the hospitals here are collapsing under the weight of HIV/AIDS. High quality medical care is just across the border in South Africa, though. - Mar 2008
