Health Precautions in Cameroon
Cameroon is a third world country, and as such, health precautions in Cameroon are essential to ensure a happy and healthy holiday.
Food and Water in Cameroon
The water is not safe to drink, even in the larger cities, but bottled water is available everywhere at good prices. Food should never be eaten if it has been left to stand or is not cooked properly. Street vendors should generally be avoided.
Medicine and Doctors in Cameroon
Medical facilities in Cameroon are few and far between, and do not have good standards generally. Rural areas especially over very poor healthcare facilities and pharmacies are fairly rare except in large cities.
Health Risks in Cameroon
Mosquitoes carry a number of diseases, including malaria, and other risks include rabies, bird flu, cholera, tick-bite fever and Meningococcal infections. Vaccinations are essential to prevent illness, and any signs of serious sickness should be checked immediately. Patients may have to be transferred to a better hospital in serious cases.
