There are no particular health risks in Uruguay. We recommend that your tetanus protection is up to date. There is no yellow fever, malaria or dengue fever risk; the authorities constantly monitor the dengue situation in neighbouring Brazil, where there are outbreaks. Be aware of the strong sun and take precautions.
If you fall ill or have an accident in Montevideo you can go to the emergency room of either the public Hospital de Clínicas (on Avenida Italia across from the Centenario stadium) or the private Hospital Británico (on Avenida Italia corner Morales). At the latter you will need to provide proof of funds or a valid insurance policy before treatment.
For emergencies in Uruguay call 911.
