Healthcare in Lagos

The standard of healthcare in Nigeria remains poor, and Lagos is no exception. Public healthcare facilities in Lagos are grossly underfunded, understaffed and underequipped. Although private healthcare facilities offer a better standard of care, this is still average at best.

Expats requiring serious medical treatment are likely to require air evacuation to a country with better facilities, such as South Africa or somewhere in Europe. As such, comprehensive medical insurance, which makes provisions for international medical evacuation, is advised for all expats living in Lagos.
