Aside from having the highest prevalence of HIV/AIDS in the world, Swaziland is a good deal healthier than most of its Southern African neighbors. There’s little to no malaria due to the high elevation. The water is drinkable and outbreaks of contagious diseases tend to be isolated and in very rural areas (such as near Big Bend in the Southeast). However, there is a shortage of medical staff in the country and most people who have serious illness and can afford it, choose to be treated in nearby South Africa. But remember, almost 45% of Swazis are HIV positive, so make sure to use a condom!
