Both prescription and non-prescription medicine can be bought in pharmacies in Peru. The Social Security service covers most prescribed medicine.
Chains like Botica Fasa and InkaFarma are widely available and well-stocked. They are open 24 hours and have free delivery. You can find the closest pharmacy to you on MINSA - Ministry of Health pharmacy database.
With so much to deal with before leaving your home country, (taxes, moving house, paperwork etc.) the careful planning of your expatriation to Lima is an essential step. As far as healthcare is concerned, your local social security scheme won’t be accompanying you to your host country and, once abroad, you might be surprised by the care system you find in Peru. So, before leaving, make sure you have appropriate cover!
