Liberia: Current Health Advice For Travellers, Tourists And Expatriates

Medical facilities throughout Liberia are poorly equipped. There are no emergency services. Blood supplies are unreliable and unsafe. Medication is scarce. There is no effective public or commercial accident and emergency or ambulance service anywhere in the country.

You should carry basic medical supplies. Ensure you have adequate supplies of prescription medication, bearing in mind the risk of delays due to flight cancellations. Make sure you have adequate international private medical insurance and travel insurance, plus easily accessible funds to cover the cost of any medical treatment abroad, medical evacuation and repatriation. 

Before travel to Liberia visit your health professional at least 6 weeks before to check whether you need any vaccinations or preventive measures.

World Health Organisation declared Liberia ebola transmission free on 14 January 2016.
