Ukraine’s President encourages medical tourism


The article quotes figures sourced from the Ukrainian Association of Medical Tourism (UAMT) which state that around 60,000 foreign patients visited Ukraine in 2018, providing a revenue of US$150 million.

The article says that the President recognised the growing potential of the medical tourism sector in Ukraine, while he was visiting the Lviv region, which is promoting seven medical resorts offering medical services including plastic surgery, dentistry, rehabilitation treatment, ophthalmology and reproductive health.

He stated that Ukraine could make a list of countries whose citizens usually come to Ukraine for medical treatment, and abolish visas for them.
