Kenya: Medical tourism profile
While Kenya is building more hospitals and some healthcare professionals making bold claims about the number of medical tourists they may in future attract from other African states, the reality is that thousands of Kenyans go overseas for treatment.
Medical tourism numbers in
According to the Ministry of Health Kenya gets 3,000 to 5,000 medical tourists from other African countries.
Medical tourism numbers out
According to the Ministry of Health 10,000 Kenyans seek medical treatment outside the country each year.
Medical tourism promotion
Kenya is developing a framework for medical tourism that aims at positioning Kenya as a destination for specialised healthcare services appealing to both Kenyan and international clients. As overseas investment is vital then 2022 is a probable start date.
