Philippines: Medical tourism profile
Healthcare is improving in the country and there are modern hospitals, but the general standard is patchy. There is a large discrepancy in healthcare provision with people in rural areas lacking access to the most basic medical treatments.
Medical tourism numbers in
The Philippines claims between 80,000 to 250,000 medical and health tourists annually, but nobody has any real figures.
Medical tourism numbers out
A few thousand affluent Filipinos travel for their medical, healthcare and wellness concerns.
Medical tourism promotion
The Department of Tourism (DOT) wants to create a Philippine wellness brand to expand the country’s tourism offerings. The idea is first to identify the distinct characteristic of the Philippine brand of wellness and then promote it.
