About the Forum

The Private Hospitals Association (PHA) is organizing the “International Healthcare Travel Forum” will be “UNDER THE ROYAL PATRONAGE OF HIS MAJESTY KING ABDULLAH II IBN AL HUSSEIN” and in partnership with the Global Healthcare Travel Council, during the period 26th – 28th of Oct 2019 in Amman – Jordan at Le Royal Hotel.

Building on the great success of the PHA forum in 2017, which was under The Royal Patronage Of His Majesty King Abdullah Ii Ibn Al Hussein and was attended by more than 650 participants from 42 countries. And one of the main outcomes of the forum was Amman Declaration which includes HT8 (Healthcare Travel 8 segments); medical tourism, dental tourism, spa tourism, wellness tourism, culinary tourism, sports tourism, accessible tourism and assisted residential tourism. So PHA have been advocating on implementing the 8 segments to expand healthcare travel opportunities for Jordan and this was reflected by increasing the number of healthcare travelers so the PHA is organizing this forum to build on the previous success and to set a platform for experts and professionals in healthcare travel from all over the world to get together and share experiences and knowledge.
