Last updated on Mar 02, 2024

Summary: The quality of medical care in Fiji is generally considered to be good, although it is not as advanced as in the United States. Emergency services are available, and ambulances can be called by dialing 911. Hospitals in Fiji are well-equipped and staffed with experienced medical professionals. However, some medical treatments and medications may not be available in Fiji, so it is important to check with your doctor before traveling.

How are healthcare services Fiji?

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

"Fiji offers a range of healthcare services, including primary care, hospital care, and specialist services. The public healthcare system is funded by the government and is available to all citizens and permanent residents. The quality of public healthcare in Fiji is generally good, with a range of modern facilities and well-trained staff. Foreign residents are able to access the public healthcare system, although they may be required to pay for some services. Expats in Fiji can use the public healthcare system, but they may need to pay for some services. Expats may also choose to use private healthcare services, which are available in Fiji," said an expat in Fiji.

"It is better to go to a private hospital or private clinic rather than waiting in along queue waiting to be addressed by a few rude nurses," commented one expat living in Suva, Fiji.
