Jordan medical travel sector helped by King’s support


Hammouri also noted in the article that the most in-demand treatments from foreign patients include those for heart diseases, bone and spine surgeries, cancers and tumours, dental procedures, eye and ear infections and sterility.  Hammouri has previously claimed 250,000-300,000 international patients come to Jordan every year.

Despite progress made in the last 20 years, there are still new doors for the sector to open, according to Hatem Azraai, the Ministry of Health's spokesperson in the article.  He listed the Medical Liability Law, passed last year, as one such door.  With the direction and then approval from His Majesty King Abdullah, the new law refers cases of medical malpractice or errors to a specialised jury before they are presented in front of a judge.
