International standard medical facilities are not offered in Vietnam. Advanced medical facilities and supplies are often found lacking in Vietnam. English speaking medical practitioners are found in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. It is necessary to make cash payments in advance to doctors and hospitals. Hanoi health information offers a detailed account on International health clinics in the city.
As many common medications are not found in Vietnam it is absolutely necessary to carry sufficient medicines with you on tours to Hanoi. For the benefit of tourists U.S. Embassy in Hanoi and the U.S. Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City provide lists of local English-speaking physicians. But neither office offers information on specific medical practitioners or hospitals. It is absolutely necessary for tourists to know about Hanoi health services on tours to the city. Visitors should avoid drinking roadside water, beverages and food. Tourists should only drink purified water and boiled beverages like tea and coffee.
