Medical Emergency Response

  • Yellow Fever vaccination certificates will be required from delegates coming from countries with risk of yellow fever transmission or who have transited through countries with risk of yellow fever transmission for 12 or more hours or anybody from a country currently reporting an active or on-going outbreak of yellow fever. Travellers should be vaccinated at least ten (10) days before travel.
  • Kenya is Ebola free. And, measures have been put in place to prevent the entry of the Ebola virus into the country. These measures include thermal imaging cameras for monitoring temperatures and filling out health surveillance forms.
  • The Government of Kenya will provide basic medical services at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) at no cost to all the delegates and support staff who require medical care.
  • There will also be fully equipped ambulances on stand-by for emergency services. Treatment in hospitals, clinics and pharmacies will however be paid for by the recipient of the services.
  • Delegates are therefore advised to have international/travel medical insurance as medical services offered at KICC will only be basic for minor ailments.
  • Delegates are also advised to try to carry any of their prescription drugs.
