Summary: The quality of medical care in Yemen is generally lower than in the United States. Emergency services are limited and often unreliable, with long wait times for ambulances. In some cases, it may be necessary to call a private ambulance service.

How are healthcare services Yemen?

When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Yemen, they replied:

"Healthcare services in Yemen are limited due to the ongoing civil war and the resulting economic crisis. The public healthcare system is inadequate and underfunded, leading to poor quality services and limited access to medical care. Foreign residents have limited access to the public healthcare system, as it is mainly reserved for Yemeni citizens. Expats in Yemen typically rely on private healthcare services, which are more expensive but offer better quality care. Private clinics and hospitals are available in major cities, but access to these services is limited in rural areas," commented one expat living in Yemen.
