Welcome Note

Dear Colleagues

It is my pleasure to announce the “International Healthcare Travel Forum” that will be “UNDER THE ROYAL PATRONAGE OF HIS MAJESTY KING ABDULLAH II IBN AL HUSSEIN” which is organized by the Private Hospitals Association Jordan (PHA) 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 our great success in our last 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 we 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.

We promise you that this forum will give healthcare travel stakeholders from all over the world the opportunity to meet in one place, network and strengthen the cooperation between different countries who are interested to provide or receive healthcare services.

The forum will provide participants knowledge about the latest innovations and trends in the healthcare travel industry and for this purpose we are inviting internationally renowned experts and opinion leaders and decision makers.

Looking forward to see you in Amman.
