    Ealth tourism in the EU

    A general investigation

    This study defines and explores health tourism and its three main components: medical, wellness, and spa tourism. Health tourism comprises around 5% of general tourism in the EU28 and contributes approximately 0.3% to the EU economy.

    Health tourism has a much higher domestic share than general tourism does.Increasing the share of health tourism may reduce tourism seasonality, improve sustainability and labour quality, and may help to reduce health costs through prevention measures and decreased pharmaceutical consumption.

    Professor Alceste Santuari, Secretary-General of EAPTC is among the European experts that have been interviewed in the report.
