Yemen Travel Health Advice

Medical and health care facilities are good in Sana'a and Aden, but virtually non-existent in the country side. Travellers should be up to date on common vaccinations like cholera, typhoid, tetanus, polio and hepatitis, before travelling to Yemen. Avoid swimming in rivers as bilharzias may be present. Avoid mosquito bites by using an insect repellent. Medical insurance, with provision for emergency repatriation, is strongly advised.
