Summary: The quality of medical care in Zimbabwe is generally lower than in the United States. Zimbabwe has a shortage of medical personnel and a lack of access to modern medical technology, which can lead to poorer outcomes for patients. Emergency services in Zimbabwe are limited and often unreliable. To call for an ambulance, one must contact the local police station or the Ministry of Health.

How are healthcare services Zimbabwe?

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

"Healthcare services in Zimbabwe are provided by both public and private institutions. The public healthcare system is funded by the government and is available to all citizens. The quality of public healthcare varies depending on the region, but generally it is considered to be of a lower standard than private healthcare. Foreign residents are able to access the public healthcare system, but they may be required to pay a fee. Expats in Zimbabwe typically use private healthcare services, as they are more reliable and of a higher quality. However, some expats may choose to use the public healthcare system if they are unable to afford private healthcare," mentioned one expat in Zimbabwe.
