International Business Affairs Forum – Trends in Binational Health Care & Medical Tourism

Worldwide, nearly 24 million patients and their companions travel abroad for medical tourism each year. The Cali-Baja region has been a magnet for individuals seeking medical assistance, from doctors and dentists to cosmetic surgeons and sophisticated treatments for cancer and other diseases. Many health care practitioners in Baja California were certified in the U.S. and are recognized world leaders in their specialties.

San Diego and Baja California together are also the largest medical device cluster in the world. This contributes to our leading-edge technology and state-of-the-art facilities. Major hospitals are located on both sides of the border, with hotels specially equipped to receive post-treatment patients at an already world-class binational tourism destination to welcome visitors.

With a population of 7.1 million and a binational workforce, regional health care services also look after residents that cross the border on a daily basis for work, school, or leisure. Binational healthcare plans provide quality healthcare that meets the needs of our cross-border community.

Attendees will hear from experts and regional leaders on the trends, challenges, and the evolution of binational health care. In addition, the panel will share efforts to ensure a healthy Cali-Baja region through cross-border collaboration amongst binational stakeholders.

We invite you to register for the upcoming International Business Affairs Forum taking place on Thursday, January 30th from 10:00a.m. to 11:30a.m. in Tijuana.
