Medical Tourism in Malaysia: Synopsis

Speaker: Dr. Lai Yew Wah  
Date: 18 September 2019 (Wednesday) 
Time: 10.00am – 12.00 pm 
Venue: IDK3, UTAR Kampar Campus 


The medical tourism industry is a rapidly growing sector in Malaysia, both in terms of the healthcare travelers it attracts and the revenue it generates. The government viewed it as an engine of growth, particularly after the Asian financial crisis in 1997 which resulted in lower demand, excess capacity and increased cost in private healthcare facilities. Since then, Malaysia has been successful in positioning itself as an important medical hub. Affordability, decline in transportation costs, availability of accredited medical facilities, qualified healthcare workforce, service quality, reduction in search costs and ease of adjustment are among the contributing factors to this success. Besides, the policy environment pertaining to facilitation, service liberalization, promotion and regulation is also conducive for the development of the medical tourism industry
