Overview of healthcare in Turkmenistan
While there are trained medical professionals in Turkmenistan, medical facilities and supplies are rather limited. The quality of healthcare generally does not meet international standards either. Turkmenistan has both a public and private healthcare system, though the latter is small. Long wait times for healthcare are common and traditional forms of medicine are often practiced.
Anyone who is going to live or travel to Turkmenistan should consider emergency evacuation coverage.
Turkmenistan health-related travel advice
If a medical emergency occurs, it’s best to get in touch with your travel health insurance provider right away. Hospitals in Turkmenistan usually want you to pay upfront in cash, even if you have travel health insurance. Since healthcare services are limited, you can expect to be medically evacuated to Western Europe for serious health emergencies.
You can purchase prescription medicines in pharmacies or hospitals. While pharmacists are trained, note that the standard of training might be different from what you are used to back home.
Road conditions vary throughout the country. The road conditions are better in the city but can be quite poor in rural areas. Always wear a seatbelt when you’re traveling by car or a helmet when traveling by motorcycle.
