The winds of change are sweeping across Asia-Pacific medical tourism.

Some countries have taken stock and seek to increase inbound medical tourism while others are moving from increasing medical tourism numbers to increased revenue. Others have decided that wellness tourism is far more lucrative than medical tourism. Outbound medical tourism costs some countries millions of dollars in exchange revenue but produces revenue for others. China wants medical tourists to remain in Greater China rather than going elsewhere. The myth that Asian medical tourism destinations can target customers from the USA and Western Europe is fully busted. The reality is that medical tourists are from Asia, Eastern Europe and the Pacific.

This unique analysis of Asia-Pacific medical tourism looks forward rather than back as the pandemic changed the rules of engagement forever.

Medical tourism in 2022 and beyond will not be a restart of how it was left in 2019 and earlier as previous trends will not return. This report looks at the potential and future in the context of how Asian countries are improving healthcare. Medical tourism is too often looked at in isolation from mainstream tourism and ignoring vital information on local healthcare, compulsory health insurance and private health insurance.

The author is specialist analyst, researcher, writer and publisher who for the last 30 years has specialised in medical tourism, international healthcare and international health insurance. He offers a holistic view with profiles of leading Asia-Pacific countries.

A key section profiles 12 top existing and potential medical tourism destinations - for inbound and outbound.

Another section profiles another 12 leading medical tourism sources in the region. 

For those new to medical tourism there is background such as how published numbers can be misleading, the role of key accreditors and why people become medical tourists.

To keep the report affordable it is only available as a downloadable PDF with no advertising, no images, no graphs and a few simple tables.
