Portuguese hospitals and medical services are excellent. The island's largest hospital is the Hospital Distrital do Funchal, Cruz de Carvalho (tel: (+351) 291 705 600). Hospital care is charged at a daily rate or on the basis of the medical condition and length of stay. It is therefore important to obtain travel health insurance before leaving home, since your regular health insurance might not include coverage outside your country of residence.
No specific vaccination is required.
Further information can be obtained from your travel agent or from the official travel agency of the meeting.
