In search of the most advanced medicine
Health tourism is the process of traveling outside your normal country of residence for the purpose of receiving medical care. It originally developed as a result of patients being unable finding a suitable treatment in their home country or their dificulty in locating a recognized medical specialist.
The term tourism is used, as service users often take advantage of their visits by participating in traditional touristic activities such as sightseeing and visiting sites of historical interest.
The health tourism sector has increased in recent years due to many reasons: increased knowledge of the practice as well as increased global recognition of specialist medical institutions in Spain.
One of the fundamental barriers to the practice originally was the perception of inferior quality practices in the host countries. This issue has now been allayed due to the development of national and international recognized governing bodies such as the Generalalitat de Catalunya and the Joint Commission International (JCI).
