Abstract

Medical tourism is a new world trend that has great potential. Many countries, especially in the Far East, invest in this emerging industry in order to build a modern medical infrastructure that will attract foreigners and will create a new source of income, while improving the medical services provided to the local community. This article reviews relevant literature and recent research on medical tourism. We suggest that Israel adopt a health policy that will use local know-how to turn it into a world leader in medical tourism.
