The global healthcare ecosystem is constantly evolving. In recent years, emphasis is being placed on prioritising wellness and preventive healthcare as the growing global population becomes more diligent in adopting a healthier lifestyle.
Similarly, Malaysia Healthcare has been advocating the need to move from curative care to preventive health and wellness, encouraging healthier lifestyles. Malaysia Healthcare introduced a new Premium Wellness Programme, an industry-wide collaborative effort with top-tier private hospitals, hotels and travel companies in the country to integrate comprehensive health screening, world-class accommodation and leisure tour offerings into one convenient comprehensive premium package for healthcare travellers.
“In line with the third Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) of the United Nations to ‘ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all at all ages’, Malaysia Healthcare warmly welcomes healthcare travellers, especially health and wellness enthusiasts who are eager to seek preventive care and wellness treatments to take advantage of this programme. In addition to health screening according to your age, gender and current health status, patients can choose to add on dental, aesthetic and cosmetic procedures as well as having more targeted screenings for diseases like Hepatitis C, cancer and heart related diseases. You will be able to indulge in the comforts of top-notch hotels and enjoy the country’s touristic attractions via specially arranged tours,” said Mohd Daud Mohd Arif, Chief Executive Officer of the Malaysia Healthcare Travel Council (MHTC).
Malaysia, a popular global destination for healthcare travellers, has won numerous awards, including the coveted “Destination of the Year” title by UK-based healthcare travel authority International Medical Travel Journal (IMTJ) numerous times in recent years. The country’s solid reputation as a destination for travel and healthcare attracted 1.06 million European tourists and 1.22 million healthcare travellers in 2019 alone.
In its commitment to ensuring that all healthcare travellers receive affordable, accessible and seamless end-to-end healthcare, the country also offers niche treatments such as cardiology, oncology, fertility, orthopaedics, neurology, and aesthetics such as bariatric treatments, dental and other services.
Malaysia is home to over 250 private healthcare facilities, which are highly regulated by the Ministry of Health Malaysia (MOH) and globally recognised. The country adopts regulated prices, with the MOH overseeing ceiling rates for healthcare treatments. As such, healthcare travellers are assured of fair price structures no matter the treatment complemented by the country’s healthcare offerings which are easily accessible, with little to no waiting time needed.
“Malaysia Healthcare is on a quest to provide the Best Healthcare Travel Experience and invites interested healthcare travellers, especially health and wellness enthusiasts, to come and visit us at the World Trade Market 2022 (WTM) and learn more about our Premium Wellness Programme and other offerings. Come and take advantage of the seamless end-to-end services that Malaysia Healthcare provides,” said Mohd Daud.
In addition to MHTC, Malaysia’s tourism partners, including Tourism Malaysia and state tourism bodies from Sarawak, Sabah, Penang, Selangor, Johor, Perak and Melaka, Malaysia’s leading private hospitals will be on hand at WTM.
