Health tourism generates $1.2 million in revenue for Iran

Bahram Einollahi, the Iranian minister of health, claims that in the first five months of the Iranian calendar year, health tourism brought in $1.2 million for Iran.

Iran (IMNA) - At a ceremony celebrating the beginning of the Labbafinezhad Hospital's development and restoration plans in Iran on Tuesday, Einollahi made the comments.

According to him, Iran made $1.2 million from medical tourism between late March and late August 2023.

He noted that the Tehran University of Medical Sciences has established an international branch in Iraq.

Iran has successfully established itself as a popular destination for health tourism thanks to its developed healthcare infrastructure, highly qualified medical staff, and state-of-the-art facilities.

An important aspect influencing the arrival of health tourists is the cost of medical care in that country compared to European states. Patients from neighboring countries and Central Asia have discovered that they can get the same quality of care in Iran for much less money.

The most common diseases that drive health tourists to Iran are those in the domains of gynecology and obstetrics, eye surgery, orthopedics, cosmetic surgery, cardiovascular disorders, urology, needless medical procedures, general surgery, malignancies, and trauma.

In addition to the cost advantage, Iran has also gained a reputation for its highly skilled and experienced medical professionals. Many doctors in Iran have received training and education from prestigious international institutions, making them well-equipped to provide top-notch medical care. This combination of affordability and expertise has made Iran an attractive destination for health tourists seeking specialized treatments in these specific domains.
