Healthcare in Lebanon

Healthcare in Lebanon is among the best in the region and some hospitals are at par with European and US hospitals. This is despite the relatively short time it has had to develop following the devastation of the civil war.

Private clinics and medical centres are available throughout the country and equipped with the latest facilities and technology. The American University of Beirut Medical Centre (AUBMC) is one of the Middle East’s leading multi-specialty medical facilities with several of its departments, serving as distinguished referral centres for the region.

Most Lebanese are privately insured and those registered with the National Social Security Fund (NSSF) have partial health coverage. Policies providing corporate group coverage are widely used by companies registered at the NSSF to supplement the benefits provided by the government's healthcare system. International private medical insurance is available for non-Lebanese living in Lebanon. Cost for healthcare varies between hospitals and doctors.

A number of pharmacies are available across the country. Many drugs are available over the counter without prescription and some pharmacists prescribe required medicine for minor ailments.
