More Indonesians becoming medical tourists

Thursday, 9 July 2009

People from Indonesia are increasingly travelling abroad for medical treatment. In 2007, Thailand welcomed 600,000 medical tourists from Indonesia, and 400,000 went to India. Indonesians are leaving due to high costs for healthcare at home, and concerns over healthcare standards in Indonesia. In response to the growing market, Garuda Sentra Medika and Sun Health Care formed Garuda Air Ambulance Indonesia. Garuda Air Ambulance Indonesia is a service to Indonesians that arranges all aspects of a medical tourism trip, including selection of healthcare provider and transportation.
