Sudan Travel Health Advice

A yellow fever certificate is required by those arriving from an infected country. Malaria is rife and malaria medication is recommended for travel to all parts of the country; dengue fever also occurs, so precautions against mosquito bites should be taken. Vaccinations are recommended for hepatitis A, hepatitis B, typhoid and meningococcus. Water and food-borne diseases are common and travellers should purify drinking water and carry anti-diarrhoeal drugs.

Medical facilities in Khartoum are adequate for routine problems, but the war has resulted in a shortage of medicine and hospital equipment; visitors should ensure they have comprehensive medical insurance, which should include evacuation by air ambulance.
