Jamaica: Medical tourism profile
Private healthcare institutions offer a high standard of medical care but much below what is expected in the US or Europe. Many serious health conditions cannot be treated on the island but require travel to a nearby country.
Medical tourism numbers in
Jamaica only gets a few hundred medical tourists.
Medical tourism numbers out
An estimated 5,000 Jamaicans go overseas for medical treatment every year.
Medical tourism promotion
JAMPRO’s strategy is to promote overseas investment into Jamaica’s slowly growing medical tourism sector, as neither the government nor local businesses have the funds to develop or improve local hospitals and clinics.
