Persons resident in or visiting Kiribati who require assistance from a U.S. diplomatic mission should contact the U.S. Embassy in Suva, Fiji, P.O. Box 218 or 158 Princes Rd, Tamavua, Fiji, telephone: (679) 3314-466, fax: (679) 3302-267, email: SuvaACS@state.gov.

While Kiribati only has a total land area of 726 square kilometers, the country is spread over 3.5 million kilometers of ocean, presenting significant challenges for the healthcare system.  For those living on or visiting outlying islands, access to the nearest medical facilities can be a logistical challenge.

Primary health care is provided through a network of health centers and outreach village clinics extending from the district to community level.  The country has four hospitals, with the main hospital being the Tungaru Central Hospital (TCH).
