Overview of healthcare in Morocco

Morocco has a two-tiered healthcare system: universal public healthcare and private healthcare. Since public healthcare does not meet Western standards, most expats are more comfortable with the private alternative.

Routine checkups

If you’re due for a checkup or have any concerns, General Practitioners (GPs) and specialists are available throughout Morocco. Some doctors accept walk-ins while others only take appointments. Instead of specific times, patients are usually asked if they want a morning or afternoon appointment and seen on a first-come-first-served basis. The office hours of GPs in Morocco are usually between 9 am to 1 pm, and 4 pm to 7 pm from Monday to Friday, as well as 9 am to 1 pm on Saturday. 

If you require any blood work or an x-ray, your doctor will tell you where to go since they are usually not done at the office. 

Pharmacies 

If you need any prescription medication, your doctor will give you a note that you can bring to any pharmacy to collect. Pharmacies in Morocco are easy to spot since they typically have either a green plus or crescent sign. Medicine that you might be used to buying over the counter back home, such as ibuprofen, has to be requested from the pharmacist. 

Hospitals 

The level of care and services available vary between hospitals. Generally speaking, doctors and medical equipment are lacking in the North African country, which can severely impair certain emergency services. Additionally, the differences between healthcare in major towns and rural areas can be significant. It’s always advisable to get a second opinion before agreeing to any important surgery. 

Doctor and hospital service fees are charged in cash. Since you’ll rarely be able to pay with a credit card, it’s best to have cash ready. Ambulance services require advance payment as well. 

Morocco health-related travel advice

It’s recommended to be up to date with your immunization schedule before visiting Morocco, including polio, tetanus, and diphtheria. It’s also advisable to be vaccinated for typhoid, rabies, and hepatitis A and B. 

Dengue Fever is prevalent in the area, so it’s best to avoid mosquito bites and carry mosquito repellent on you. 

While common in Morocco, henna tattoos contain a chemical called para-phenylenediamine (PPD), which can result in a painful allergic reaction for some people. 

How to find the best private health insurance in Morocco

It’s imperative to have comprehensive travel insurance when traveling to Morocco to cover any medical costs that may occur abroad, including emergency evacuation
