Health Tourism: Social Welfare Through International Trade

Industry News

In his book, Health Tourism: Social Welfare Through International Trade, David Reisman examines health/medical travel from a very interesting perspective. He uses his background as an academic to present a multidisciplinary account of the medical tourism industry and how it has the potential to create jobs and wealth, while at the same time giving sick people high-quality care at an affordable price.

It is great to hear about how medical tourism is not just making a small number of people rich, but that it is in fact helping the local population and sick people in need of affordable healthcare.

Prof. Reisman will go more into depth about his findings during his presentation at the 5th World Medical Tourism and Global Healthcare Congress. It will be a unique opportunity to learn more and ask him questions about his suggestions on how the industry should be regulated in order to maximize the benefits for all parties involved.

Professor David Reisman is a (full) Professor of Economics at the Nanyang Tecvhnological University. He is a graduate of the London School of Economics and holds the degree of D.Sc.(Econ.) from the University of London.

He has held the Hallsworth, Humboldt and DAAD Fellowships and received several prizes. He has written extensively in the fields of economic thought, political economy and health economics.
