Medical Tourism in Portugal: the new medical tourism portal

Health and well-being


The Health Cluster Portugal in collaboration with Turismo de Portugal, the Agência para o Investimento e Comércio Externo de Portugal, EPE (AICEP – Portuguese Agency for Investment and Foreign Trade) and the Portuguese Association of Private Hospitalisation (APHP) created a new portal that aims to make Portugal known as a reference country for medical tourism worldwide. With the goal of promoting the national supply in this field, it aims to reach 100 million euros per year by 2025.

Modern infrastructures, state-of-the-art equipment, highly qualified health professionals, innovation, climate and hospitality make the difference. The health sector is growing and Portugal - a sustainable and inclusive destination, with a cohesive, innovative and competitive territory, not only to visit, but also to invest, live or study - is already one of the reference countries in the area of tourism, and can also assert itself as a model destination in medical tourism.

At a time when the restrictions determined by COVID-19 are being lifted, conditions are gathered to resume the implementation of the strategy defined in the cooperation protocol for the international promotion of the Portuguese medical tourism supply, signed between the entities involved. By electing cardiology, dermatology, oncology, rehabilitation, plastic surgery, otorhinolaryngology and orthopaedics as areas of focus, the national medical tourism supply has the conditions for a robust and high quality response to those who seek us.

Destinations such as the USA, Turkey, Hungary, Switzerland, Malaysia and Thailand are world references in this theme, not always for the same reasons.
The new portal had in its conception and will count on the qualified participation of the CUF, Luz Saúde and Lusíadas Saúde groups.
