Staying healthy in Togo: Here’s what you need to know

Making sure you're in good health before your trip to Togo is key to an enjoyable visit. Here's a general health guide that will prove beneficial for visitors to the country.

Make sure to stay updated on routine vaccines

It's important to be current with your routine vaccines before traveling. This includes vaccinations for measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DPT), varicella (chickenpox), polio, and your yearly flu shot.

The following vaccines are recommended for international visitors:

  • Hepatitis A: Advisable for anyone over a year old who hasn't received this vaccine and is traveling to Togo.

  • Hepatitis B: Recommended for individuals of all ages who are unvaccinated and planning to visit Togo.

  • Malaria: Prescription medicine is recommended to travelers to prevent malaria. Depending on the medicine you take, you may need to start taking it days before your trip, as well as during and after your journey.

  • Measles: A dose of the MMR vaccine is recommended for infants aged 6 to 11 months before traveling.

  • Meningitis: Recommended for travelers who are 2 months old or older traveling to regions that have experienced outbreaks of the disease.

  • Rabies: This vaccine is recommended for travelers involved in outdoor activities that might expose them to animal bites or those working with animals.

  • Typhoid: Especially recommended for visitors to rural areas, smaller towns, or those staying with locals.

  • Yellow fever: Mandatory for travelers coming from countries with a risk of yellow fever virus transmission. This vaccine is also recommended for all travelers who are 9 months or older, regardless of the country they’ve come from.

  • Stay informed about the latest COVID-19 travel advisories for Togo, including any quarantine, testing, or vaccine documentation requirements. For up-to-date information, consult your airline or check the Ministry of Health website.

Medical facilities

  • Togo offers both public and private medical facilities, with the quality of care generally higher in major cities such as Lomé.

  • In the countryside, healthcare facilities are more basic, and emergency services may be scarce.

  • Private healthcare is often preferred by many international visitors because of the wider selection of services and access to specialists.

  • You'll find pharmacies in cities and urban areas, stocking various over-the-counter drugs. However, if there's a particular prescription medication you need, it's better to bring it with you.

Health insurance

It’s really important to have travel health insurance for your entire trip.

Healthcare, especially in private facilities, can get expensive. Make sure your insurance covers significant health costs, including if you need to be evacuated for medical care.

Double-check with your insurance provider to confirm your policy covers:

  • Refunds for any travel mishaps, like cancellations or delays.

  • Costs for medical treatments and possible medical evacuation.

  • Compensation for lost baggage.

Things to be aware of when visiting Togo

Fill me in

Togo is a must-visit destination in West Africa. To make your trip as smooth as possible, here are some guidelines to keep in mind.

  1. Food and water safety: To minimize the chances of health issues, drink only bottled water and be cautious with raw or undercooked meals.

  2. Water safety: Coastal waters can be dangerous due to strong currents. Consult local residents for information on possible hazards and safe swimming areas.

  3. Sand dust: The harmattan, a burning, dusty, and sand-filled wind, blows in from the Sahara from December to March and can affect people with respiratory issues. Talk to your doctor before you travel to learn what you can do, and monitor local media for up-to-date information.
