  • Dear Maria,

    You are so right when you said "Whenever I travel with Kuwaiti officials, they seem to be looking to find providers to send Kuwaitis to access care elsewhere".

    Kuwait is not exporting Medical Tourism, just trying to promote it. The event is "nice" unfortunately, the time is very wrong. People leave in the months of June to September every year and accordingly, prepare for it in March to May. Holding a show now is nice but by the time they are ready to leave or, start the preparation, they will forget about the show. Eventually, the advertisers will end up not benefiting from it.
  • Anyone knows someone starting up Medical Travel in Switzerland?
  • Wow, I didn't know Kuwait was exporting medical tourism. Whenever I travel with Kuwaiti officials, they seem to be looking to find providers to send Kuwaitis to access care elsewhere. Please share with us a debriefing white paper on what you find there! I am very interested. Especially if you get to walk a few hospitals and look around. Take lots of photos!
