How is the health care situation and do I have to have health insurance?
Health care facilities in Nairobi are relatively high quality and easily accessible. However, please make sure you have adequate travel health insurance and accessible funds to cover the cost of any medical treatment abroad and repatriation. If your current health insurance does not cover your time in Kenya, there are several independent and online providers who provide affordable health insurance.
Amani Institute will provide information about health care, and vaccinations during the preparatory meetings. Please make sure to also check with your Ministry/Department of Foreign Affairs for their current advice on travelling to Kenya. Nairobi is not a malaria region, but other parts of Kenya are, especially the coastal and northern areas.
