Dubai targets China, Russia and Africa for medical tourism


Dubai is targeting China, Russia and selected African nations as new sources of medical tourists. Particular targets are Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania.

Dubai seeks to strengthen its position health care. A team from Dubai Medical Tourism Council and Dubai Health Authority are working with the international patient team and doctors from the Canadian Specialist Hospital on strategies to attract more patients into the city.

Canadian Specialist Hospital has an international patient centre and has been promoting medical tourism since 2006. It offers a variety of packages including orthopaedics, ophthalmology, dental, dermatology, wellness and preventive health check-up and assisted reproductive techniques.

The initial conclusion is that hospitals, clinics and medical tourism promotion organisations need to work far better with the tourism, hospitality and aviation industries locally and globally- particularly with international and local travel agents, hotels and passenger airlines.
