Apply for health assistance

If you do not have health insurance and receive uninterrupted assistance for subsistence for a short period of time (probably less than a month), the social welfare office will immediately ensure the necessary medical care by issuing a treatment certificate.

These include:

  • Preventive health assistance for the prevention and early detection of diseases
  • Help with illness
  • Help with family planning
  • Help with pregnancy and maternity
  • Help with sterilization
