LONDON – Recently, Malaysia has emerged as a strong competitor in the worldwide health and medical tourism market. Due to high potential of the medical tourism industry as a foreign exchange earner, the country’s government has taken a range of proactive measures to enhance and promote Malaysia as a preferred health and medical tourism destination. The list of the most high-demand medical procedures amid the medical tourists coming to Malaysia includes endocrinology, orthopedics, cardiology, cosmetic, oncology, rheumatology, urology, obstetrics & gynecology, and eye surgeries, among others.

Malaysia can boast a wide choice of well-equipped and staffed private medical centers that have sophisticated therapeutic, diagnosis and in-patient facilities. Malaysia has become a popular medical tourism destination due to its low cost of medical procedures, availability of good healthcare infrastructure and well-skilled medical staff, and also sound government support through different promotional programs. In 2013, the total number of medical tourist arrivals to the country climbed to 700,000. Indonesia presents the biggest source market for Malaysia’s medical tourism. Other important revenue generators for the industry include the US, Japan, China, Hong Kong and Australia.
