Angola Travel Health Advice
Yellow fever vaccinations are required for entry to Angola if visitors are coming from infected countries. Malaria, hepatitis A and B, rabies and polio are all prevalent in the country, which has poor medical facilities excluding those in Luanda.
Travellers should practise food and hygiene measures. Drinking water should be treated or bought in sealed bottles as the water supply is unsafe to drink (travellers should avoid ice cubes in drinks as well), and care should be taken with hygiene and food, particularly street food. Visitors should avoid eating unpeeled, unwashed fruit and vegetables and be wary of milk and milk products, as these items are often unpasteurised.
It is wise to take Malaria prophylaxis when travelling through Angola; comprehensive medical insurance is necessary, with provision for medical repatriation by air.
