Commonwealth Report on Medical Tourism!

The Commonwealth Secretariat produced a great report on Medical Tourism in their Health and Welfare section of their annual report to Commonwealth Ministers two years ago. This report is once again gaining attention as a number of Commonwealth countries including Malaysia are experiencing rapid growth in this area.  

Members of the Commonwealth are in an advantageous position when it comes to aligning themselves as medical tourism destinations. Commonwealth nations have existing and well established social, economic and cultural connections with countries that are currently leading source markets for medical tourism such as the UK, Canada and Australia.

The Malaysian government has listed healthcare travel or medical tourism as one of the key areas under the Government Transformation Programme to increase the number of medical tourists. Malaysia Healthcare has been a proud supporter of the programme and is working closely with other agencies to make Malaysia a regional hub for healthcare.
