The medical tourism program in Philippines, which was launched in 2006, can be considered to be a huge success. The hospitals in Philippines also have international accreditation offered by the leading British company, QHA Trent. The Joint Commission International (JCI), an American accreditation group has also accredited the major hospitals in the country.
The government of Philippines is rolling out many plans to boost the medical tourism infrastructure and to enhance the standards of healthcare providers in the country. Along with this, well-planned international marketing campaign is being carried out to highlight the position of Philippines in the list of the top medical tourism destinations in the world. However, there is a stark difference in the healthcare services and facilities provided at private and public institutions. It is recommended that the visitors take advantage of the medical tourism facilities offered by private organizations, if they want to get the best treatment.
