Health care in Myanmar is very basic. Although health care is nominally free, but patients have to pay for medicine and treatment, even in public clinics and hospitals.
Public hospitals lack many of the basic facilities and equipment. Therefore, we recommend that you prepare full medical supplies or purchase insurance before traveling to Myanmar and visit your health professional at least 4 to 6 weeks before your trip to check whether you need any vaccinations or other preventive measures.
Competent medical advice and treatment may not be available outside Rangoon and Mandalay, and any services provided will not be to the standard of those in United States, the European Union (EU) or other developed countries. Avoid intrusive examinations, including emergency dental work, due to irregular hygiene standards and the danger of infection, particularly by hepatitis B and C and HIV/AIDS.
Cash payment is often required prior to receiving medical treatment in Burma. Make sure you have adequate travel health insurance and accessible funds to cover the cost of any medical treatment abroad and/or repatriation.
