Health Services To Be Provided Under Health Tourism And Tourist Health , 21.07.2011

As a result of the implementation of Transformation in Health Program, health service provision quality, infrastructure and medical equipment of our hospitals subject to the Ministry of Health has increased and the service web and quality of our emergency health services have risen to very high levels. On the other hand, international emergency patient transfers can now be performed with helicopter ambulances and plane ambulances. Furthermore, the quality of health services will increase with the health campuses to be opened in future years at some regions of Turkey.  

In this framework, we have many opportunities to provide health services at many of our hospitals to our citizens abroad and to tourists visiting our country. It has been deemed appropriate and necessary to provide health services to those who demand such health services, under principles outside the scope of Social Insurances and General Health Insurance Law 5510 and international bilateral agreements.  

Those who would be provided health services in accordance with this mandate shall be considered under two main groups. First; people from abroad, preferring our country for receiving health services under Health Tourism. Second; people who would receive health services under Tourist Health for emergency treatments required during the visits of tourists, coming to Turkey for tourism purposes. For further explanation please see the Mandate attached herewith.
