Dubai Named ‘Destination of the Year’ in Medical Tourism

The World Health Tourism Congress has named “Destination of the Year” in Dubai, recognizing it as a world destination for medical tourism.

During the first half of 2015, around 260,000 medical tourists traveled to Dubai mainly for orthopaedics, aesthetics, dental, preventive health and wellness and fertility treatments.

Dr Layla Al Marzouqi, Director of Health Regulation at DHA and the Medical Tourism Initiative in Dubai, said that Dubai’s attractiveness as a destination and the availability of high quality medical care are the key drivers of the medical tourism initiative.
