and Medical Facilities
resorts have first aid facilities and on some you can
get the services of a resident doctor and facilities
for minor treatment. Some have clinics with separate
observation rooms and small pharmacies. The Indira Gandhi
Memorial Hospital (IGMH) and the ADK Hospital are the
two major hospitals in Male’. In addition there are
a number of smaller clinics where you may consult a
doctor. In both the IGMH and ADK doctors are on duty
24 hours of the day. Both conduct surgery and offer
a number of specialist services.
you suffer from a permanent disability or chronic illness
it is advisable to inform your resort before arrival
and find out whether they can cater for your specific
requirements. Most resorts cater for special dietary
requirements without additional charges. If you are
dependent on any medications please bring along an ample
supply, together with a valid prescription in case you
are required to produce it at Customs.
you are planning to take up diving during your visit,
it is a good idea to consult your physician and do a
medical check-up to see if you are fit enough.
