Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of health system does Kenya have?

The Kenyan health system can be divided into three categories. Public providers, private non-profit organisations (including faith-based and mission hospitals as well as local and international NGOs) and private for-profit health care providers. Basic government-funded public healthcare is provided at primary healthcare centres and dispensaries.

Is there health insurance for expats in Kenya?

Without it, healthcare costs are just as expensive as in Western countries, and covering the costs for emergency care – and especially medical evacuation – out of pocket can be impossible. Often, employers relocating expats to Kenya will provide insurance.

Is it affordable to go to hospital in Kenya?

Day-to-day treatment can be surprisingly affordable but, to admit patients without insurance to a private hospital, a heavy deposit is required. We highly recommend expats settling in Kenya invest in private health insurance so that they are covered for more complex procedures and expensive evacuations.

Is there a medical emergency number in Kenya?

Some serious health issues will require medical evacuation. This can also be extremely costly and expats should ensure that their health insurance will provide appropriate cover. The medical emergency number in Kenya is 999 and is run by English speaking operators.
