We asked expats in Tanzania if they have access to public healthcare in Tanzania. And, if they do have access, what is it like. They wrote...

"Yes, foreigners living in Tanzania have access to public healthcare. The quality of care varies depending on the region, but generally the public healthcare system is underfunded and understaffed. The facilities are often overcrowded and lack basic medical supplies. However, there are some private hospitals and clinics that offer better quality care," explained one expat living in Tanzania.
