Healthcare in Nairobi

As is the case throughout Kenya, the standard of healthcare in Nairobi varies considerably depending on the type of treatment needed and the type of hospital one can afford.

There are plenty of private hospitals, medical centres and individual practices in and around Nairobi. The major challenge for expats will be to decide where to seek treatment. Expats moving to Nairobi will need to consider convenience and which facility best aligns with their priorities and health needs.

Pharmacies are easy to find in Nairobi. Most major hospitals have pharmacies attached to them, which are open 24/7. There are also privately run pharmacies that can easily be located in shopping malls as well as on major streets in Nairobi.

Below is a list of some of the city's most prominent hospitals.
