When there is a medical emergency what do I do or who do I contact in Namibia?

Check with your health insurance company before you travel and make sure you’re aware of any specific procedures they may wish you to follow. Emergency assistance within Namibia will almost certainly be provided by a private medical company, probably one of either International SOS Namibia, E-Med Rescue 24, Namibia Private Ambulance Services, or LifeLink.

Dialling 10111 will usually put you through to the local police service, but there is no unified medical emergency number in Namibia. Make sure you have the telephone number of one or all of the private emergency services in your phone, with enough credit to place a call.
