Medical technology and pharmaceutical companies in Europe are among the top institutions in the world, and they maintain a cutting-edge research environment for continuous innovations in the field of medicine. According to the World Bank Group, the GDP of the EU was 17.18 trillion in 2021, and public health spending accounted for 8.1% of the GDP. The EU health market has substantially greater potential than the actual current demand for EU health services. According to a study, ~90% of EU citizens are currently undergoing some treatment in their country, and 53% of the citizens are willing to opt for treatments provided in other EU countries. Europe has several major medical clusters that are specialized in taking care of medical tourists coming from all over the world. For instance, Poland is one of the most preferred medical tourism destinations in this region. Medical tourists visit this country for plastic surgeries, weight loss surgeries, cardiovascular surgeries, and orthopedic treatments. The costs of these surgical procedures are lower than those in developed countries. Similarly, medical tourists prefer Switzerland for treatments as the country has more than 500 hospitals, whereby 40 plus hospitals are private medical centers. Spain is another European country that has many large hospitals and well-established clinics catering to international patients. However, treatment costs in these institutes are higher than the fees charged for the same services in Eastern European destinations. Spaincares, a healthcare service platform, claims that the country welcomes ~140,000 medical tourists annually, with the largest number of patients coming from the UK.
Governments of countries in the Middle East & Africa are collaborating with governments of developed countries across the world to improve their healthcare services, which would help them attract medical tourists in large numbers. The UAE government has collaborated with US-based hospitals, which provides the healthcare sector in the UAE access to cutting-edge technologies. This allows them to improve healthcare facilities, services, and patient care. For instance, Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins Hospital, and the Cleveland Clinic Foundation have signed the memoranda of understanding with the UAE ambassador to provide enhanced medical care to designated Emirati patients for ongoing collaboration between the American hospitals and their counterparts in the UAE. In the UAE, the healthcare system is mostly funded by the government; however, in the last few years, there has been a significant increase in private sector investments in healthcare services.
