Health care in Senegal is provided in hospitals, health centres, private practices, and also at home. In the case of local health insurance, it is advisable to find out about the list of partner hospitals and health centres, which can be consulted beforehand.
In the case of international health insurance, it is possible to choose a healthcare facility and a doctor. Dakar's main hospital is the best-known health facility in Senegal, covering a wide range of specialities and ranking in the top 30 best African hospitals (Webometris, 2015). Dakar also has a few good private clinics.
Health transfers to neighbouring countries (Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria), or even repatriation, are however often recommended in case of complex care needs.
