    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.

    The European Social Rights Pillar

    On 26th April 2017, the European Commission has enacted an important recommendation on the European Social Rights Pillar. It sets out some important principles, which also affect patients and users of Thermal and Health SPAs. In this perspective, the recommendation acknowledges that each EU citizen ?has the right to timely access to affordable, preventive and curative health care of good quality.

    Doubtless, health SPA provisions and services do fall within health care services, which citizens are to be ensured. This is the main aim of our Association, which is committed to helping patients and users of thermal centres and SPAs to protect their social and health rights.
