Summary: The quality of medical care in Gambia is generally lower than in the United States. Emergency services are limited and often lack the necessary resources to provide adequate care. To call for an ambulance, one must contact the Gambian Ministry of Health or the local police station.

How are healthcare services Gambia?

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

"Gambia has a public healthcare system that provides basic healthcare services to its citizens. The quality of public healthcare in Gambia is generally considered to be low, with limited access to specialized care and medications. Foreign residents in Gambia are able to access the public healthcare system, but the quality of care is not as high as in other countries. Expats in Gambia typically use private healthcare services, which are more expensive but offer better quality care. Private healthcare services are available in major cities, but access to these services is limited in rural areas," wrote an expat living in Gambia.
