Medical Assistance

Please note: The Department of State assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the entities or individuals whose names appear on the following lists. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department or the U.S. government. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance. The information on the list is provided directly by the local service providers; the Department is not in a position to vouch for such information.

The U.S. Embassy in N’Djamena assumes no responsibility for the professional ability or reputation of the persons or medical facilities whose names appear on the following list; nor does this serve as an endorsement.  While routine consultations and emergencies may be handled in N’Djamena, most patients prefer to seek medical and dental service abroad, especially for intrusive procedures, if time and circumstances allow.

Please note that Medicaid/Medicare does not apply outside the United States, and your private medical insurance may or may not apply overseas; contact your insurance provider for more information.

Generally cash in advance of treatment is demanded.  It is highly recommended that membership in an overseas medical insurance provider be obtained prior to arrival in N’Djamena.  U.S. citizen visitors must display proof of immunization for yellow fever prior to enter and malaria prophylaxis is highly recommended.  Further information may be found at www.cdc.gov.
