Medical Care in Luang Prabang

Medical care in Luang Prabang has improved significantly over the last few years, but the lack of medical facilities remains a major problem in the whole area. Some of the most reputable hospitals in the area of the Luang Prabang are Attapeu Province Hospital and Khammouane Province Hospital with French- and English-speaking staff ready to help travellers in need and a 24-hour emergency service, including ambulances. Most of the time, patients with more serious injuries are transferred by road or air to Thailand. As for pharmacies, please avoid purchasing medicines from markets since counterfeit pharmaceuticals are a common problem. Here's a shortlist of reputable pharmacies in the area: - Bouaphan Pharmacy (English-speaking staff) Sakkaline Rd., Luang Prabang - Phakan's clinic (English-speaking staff and efficient service) Laos
