Maputo Medical Resources List 2018

The list of medical providers we have is not meant to be exhaustive or definitive nor does it represent either a guarantee of competence or endorsement by the Department of State or the American Embassy. It does indicate that the American community has utilized them in the past. Retention on this list depends upon a combination of factors including availability, training, and positive assistance in previous consultations, etc. Patient input, both positive and negative, regarding experience with local health care providers, is always welcome and provides additional information to assist in expanding or contracting this list.
