Kaohsiung - 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?

The air quality is pretty poor, so medical conditions like asthma or allergies can flare up here. Medical care is generally good, and most doctors speak enough English. You'd probably need some help navigating the crazy medical system at first though! If a hospital stay is required, things become more complicated as there is little after-care. Patients' families/friends are expected to help with things like changing sheets, and food is usually not provided. - Aug 2011
