Medical Services in Burkina Faso

Please note that many medical services readily available in the United States may not be available in Burkina Faso.  Medical facilities and infrastructures can be extremely limited, especially outside of the larger cities of Ouagadougou and Bobo-Dioulasso. Emergency treatment may be entirely unavailable and emergency response services may be over-taxed, under-resourced, or even non-existent. Treatment of serious medical issues may require medical evacuation from the country.
