To prevent traveler's diarrhea, it is advised to avoid the foods most at risk: prepared dishes eaten cold at a later hour, seafood, meat and fish if it is undercooked or badly cooked, and raw vegetables and fruits that you have not peeled yourself. Drinking water must be boiled, filtered or drunk directly from sealed bottles. Bathing in fresh water exposes you to the risk of urinary bilharziosis (or schistosomosis) although this risk is not very high, it can vary one bathing place to another, even in the same region. Do not bathe unless you can get reliable advice regarding the spot. Bilharziosis is particularly prevalent in the valley of the River Euphrates.
In the public hospitals, one has to register in the waiting list to have an operation. In private establishments, two days of hospitalization costs about SYP 15,000 (about USD 200).
