Pharmacies and hospitals are available in all major cities and emergency and health care is to a very high Western standard. Pharmacists and all medical personnel speak adequate English. In Israeli pharmacies, the "over-the-counter" stuff is in fact over the counter. Ask the pharmacist if you need anything. Travel health insurance is highly recommended; although all Israelis are covered under the national health insurance system, foreigners will be expected to pay for any treatment received in the public hospitals or at a clinic. Tap water is potable and perfectly safe for drinking all throughout Israel, big cities and rural parts alike. However, avoid taps that you might find within cultivated fields (e.g. while hiking); they may use recycled water which is only good for irrigation. Street food is safe and clean, including fried dishes, fish and different salads. It still is wise to use common sense and avoid anything suspicious. Due to the hot climate in sunny Israel, remember to use sunscreen throughout your stay and drink a lot of water. Respect Commons:Category:Israel Wikipedia:Israel Dmoz:Regional Middle East Israel
