  2. Access to Specialized Healthcare Services:
    • Patients opt for outbound medical tourism to access specialized treatments and procedures that may not be readily available or may involve long waiting times in their home countries. This includes procedures ranging from cosmetic surgeries to advanced medical interventions.
  3. High-Quality Healthcare Facilities:
    • The global expansion of high-quality healthcare facilities has contributed to the attractiveness of outbound medical tourism. Many countries have invested significantly in state-of-the-art medical infrastructure and advanced technologies to cater to international patients.

Destinations Shaping Outbound Medical Tourism:
