Information for Patients
Healthcare in Georgia is provided by a universal health care system under which the state funds medical treatment in a mainly privatized system of medical facilities. The program extends publicly financed entitlement to healthcare to the entire population. The nature of the program is noncontributory, and the benefits package covers a range of primary and secondary care services and limited essential drugs. Healthcare in Georgia is not generally up to Western standards. However, medical centers in Tbilisi and other major urban areas have satisfactory quality.
Information for Health Care Professionals
Medical professionals who wish to work in Georgia but acquired education at a foreign higher medical institution can do so if the diploma is recognized by Georgia. The list of recognised diplomas is available online at the government website. Knowledge of Georgian is mandatory for all applicants.
Information for Travelers
All visitors should be in possession of private health insurance to cover the costs of medical care. Medical services are limited outside Tbilisi, therefore it is recommended that visitors go to a large city for emergency situations. Moreover, serious injuries or ailments should be treated elsewhere.
