Disparity in healthcare costs between developed and emerging countries, coupled with advanced healthcare infrastructure in emerging economies is helping to drive medical tourism in emerging countries. Sri Lanka is amongst the emerging markets in South Asia to be favorably positioned to attract increasing international patients, with countries such as India, Malaysia, and Thailand already being well-established medical tourism destinations. Medical tourism is only at a nascent stage in Sri Lanka; factors such as cost competitiveness, a booming private healthcare industry, internationally trained workers, and so on should help the development of Sri Lanka’s medical tourism industry. Moreover, the government has identified medical tourism as a key driver to augment the country’s service exports.
