Healthcare around the world – Medical Tourism

Every country has its own specialty when it comes to healthcare. From better services to lower costs and add on scenery, there are countless reasons why one should fly to another destination for their treatment. Here is a list of destinations for you to choose from when you are planning to travel for medical reasons.

1. India: India is one of the key players in the medical tourism industry as it strives to provide health care services with cutting-edge technology. Many hospitals in India are accredited by the National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare Providers (NABH) and Joint Commission International (JCI). Some private hospitals in India now provide health care packages for foreign patients which offer pick-ups from the airport to the hospital, free in-room Wi-Fi, and private chefs. Patients visit India not only for the quality and affordability of healthcare service but also for the beautiful scenery and architecture in India’s landscape. In India, medical travel brings a mix of pleasure, luxury, and quality healthcare for medical travellers.

2. Malaysia: There are countless reasons why Malaysia is an ideal destination for medical tourism. The unique part about medical tourism in Malaysia is that it is one of the few countries in the region where it is promoted by the government. This gives tourists assurance of quality, safety standards and regulations (laws regarding medical care) within the industry. Malaysia has won the number one spot in the International Medical Travel Journal’s award for ‘Health and Medical Tourism Destination of the year’ in 2015, 2016 and even in 2019. Malaysia ranks among the best providers of healthcare in all of South-East Asia.
