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 Embassy cannot provide health care or medical facilities for private Americans in Tanzania. We can, however, provide a List of Doctors that includes names and addresses of doctors and facilities that provide the highest standard of care available in Tanzania. Should you be injured or become seriously ill while in Tanzania, the Consular Section will assist you in finding an appropriate medical facility and inform family and friends at your request.

Public hospitals in Tanzania are so far below U.S. standards that some will not feel comfortable using them.  However, in serious emergencies, the closest hospital might be the best location until the patient can be stabilized.
