Eritrean achievements in the area of health care is impressive. Medical care is improving rapidly in Eritrea, new hospitals and health centers are opened every year. Modern facilities may not always available outside Asmara.

Qualifications of a drugstore owner are not always clear. In case of doubt consult a doctor. Basic non-prescription medicines are available in Asmara, but the selection is not large. Supplies of medicine can be irregular. Visitors should bring a supply of any necessary drugs and prescriptions. The pharmacy with the widest selection of medicine is Pharmacy No1 near the central post office of Asmara.

Tampons are not always available and the sanitary napkins often are of poor quality. It is advisable to bring your own supply.

 

NOTE: Take some extra Paracetamol or other pain-killer with you when traveling to Eritrea. A lot of people cannot afford medicine. It is an excellent gift if you want to surprise friends or want to reward a service.
