Potential of the medical tourism market in Africa in 2022

0


DUBLIN, November 8, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The “Medical Tourism 2022: African Potential” the report was added to ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

The winds of change are blowing on African medical tourism.

Once viewed as a mere source for other medical tourism destinations, some African countries have taken stock and have or will seek to increase inbound medical tourism and reduce outbound medical tourism.

Outbound medical tourism is costing African countries millions of dollars in foreign exchange income, so they are looking to fight back.

This unique analysis of African medical tourism looks to the future rather than the back as the pandemic has forever changed the rules of engagement.

Medical tourism in 2022 and beyond will not be a reboot of what it was in 2019 and earlier, as there is no guarantee that previous trends will return.

This report examines the potential and the future in the context of how African countries are improving health care. Medical tourism is too often viewed in isolation from traditional tourism and ignoring vital information about local health care, compulsory health insurance and private health insurance.

The author of the report is a specialist analyst, researcher, writer and editor who, over the past 30 years, has specialized in medical tourism, international health care and international health insurance.

It offers a holistic view with profiles of the main African countries.

A key section presents 11 top existing and potential medical tourism destinations in Africa– for incoming and outgoing calls.

Another section presents 12 other main sources of medical tourism in Africa

For those new to medical tourism, there is a track record such as how the published numbers can be misleading, the role of major accreditors, and why people become medical tourists.
