Dubai will host The 10th World Health Tourism Congress from September 5th – 7th, offering a global platform to healthcare and health insurance providers, tourism promotion bodies, medical and health care regulators and tour operators to discuss a wide range of issues and trends about the health tourism industry.

The congress is expected to be attended by over 1500 participants from 80 countries from various geographical regions.
The congress is being organized by Grand Aurum Marketing in cooperation with Dubai Health Care City (DHCC) under the patronage of Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and the
Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM).
This will be the 2nd time in Dubai. The previous events were held in Germany, Cyprus, Philippines, Spain, South Africa and others.

Tamer El Chamaa, Director of the Congress, said more than 250 participants will be there from the UAE where the health tourism has been given a focused attention by the tourism authorities and healthcare regulators. The organizers are expecting wider participation from the GCC and Middle Eastern countries.

He said Dubai offers a perfect destination for hosting the congress considering the fact that the Emirate of Dubai was aspiring to be a global health tourism hub, offering an interesting mix of attractions and facilities in both tourism and healthcare sectors. Dubai is aiming to attract 500,000 medical tourists a year by the year 2020.

According to Patients Beyond Borders, a medical traveler is anyone who travels across international borders for the purpose of receiving medical care.
It is said that the global health tourism market size is $95 billion.

Costa Rica, India, Malaysia, Mexico, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey and the US are among the top health tourism destinations.
The global medical tourism market is estimated to grow with a CAGR of 9.5 per cent until the year 2018.  To capture this market, both private sectors and governments of several countries are promoting medical tourism as a potentially lucrative source of foreign revenue. Dubai expects a growth in medical tourism in each of the next three years.  

Most medical tourists to Dubai are from the GCC and the wider region as well as people from countries including Libya, Iraq, Iran, Nigeria, Tunisia, India, Pakistan, and Russia.
