Medical Tourism


It is estimated that there is 20 Billion USD in outbound medical tourism coming from GCC countries. Governments in the six countries that make up the Gulf Cooperation Council (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, and Oman) regularly send their citizens to countries such as England, Germany, Thailand and India for treatment in specialties like oncology, neurology, orthopedics and cardiology.

An ageing population, rapid urbanization and lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular problems and obesity are on the rise in the GCC and through the oil-driven economic boom, increased disposable incomes and spending is increasing the demand for healthcare services.
