What are medical services in Vientiane like?

Answer this Question

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

"Medical services in Vientiane, are limited in terms of quality and availability. The city has a few public hospitals and clinics, but they often lack modern equipment, well-trained staff, and essential medications. Private clinics and hospitals are available, but they can be expensive and may not meet international standards. Many expatriates and locals with financial means often travel to neighboring countries, such as Thailand, for more advanced medical care. It is essential for visitors to have comprehensive travel insurance that includes medical evacuation coverage, as emergency services and transportation can be inadequate," remarked another expat in Vientiane, Laos.
