Healthcare in Johannesburg

A healthcare ambulance in JohannesburgWith an overstretched and underfunded public healthcare system, the majority of people in Johannesburg that can afford it opt for private care. It’s essential for expats in the city to get medical aid cover or to negotiate a provision for health insurance in their employment contract.

Private healthcare in Johannesburg is of a world-class standard. Those with the means to pay or with adequate insurance have access to private hospitals with 24/7 emergency ambulance services as well as highly trained specialists. Johannesburg is also gaining popularity as a medical tourism destination as visitors travel from abroad for medical and cosmetic procedures.
 
For check-ups and minor problems such as colds and flu, South Africans visit a general practitioner.
