Why is Turkey leading the world when it comes to health tourism? The first answer to this question is to keep health tourism under control and supervision through the ministries of the Republic of Turkey. The Ministry of Health of the Republic of Turkey and the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of the Republic of Turkey have brought strict rules and accreditation conditions to the institutions engaged in health tourism for the health and satisfaction of every tourist who comes to the country for treatment purposes. Thanks to these inspections, tourists coming to Turkey are primarily under the guarantee of the state. It is necessary to pay attention to whether the persons or institutions contacted by tourists coming to the country have TÜRSAB (Association of Turkish Travel Agencies) accreditation and certificate. It is forbidden for the patient to come to Turkey through institutions and persons who do not have the TÜRSAB (Association of Turkish Travel Agencies) certificate. It is possible for the patient to experience great grievances in the face of negativities that may arise by unauthorized persons or institutions. For this reason, it will be beneficial for patients to choose institutions such as Fibemed Healthcare that have TÜRSAB certificate and have been approved by the Turkish Government.

The Ministry of Health of the Republic of Turkey encourages the arrival of patients to the country through health tourism and the treatment of patients in Turkey. The Government of the Republic of Turkey has been making large investments in this regard for many years. Turkey has high-quality private and university hospitals, as well as high-quality state city hospitals are built by the government. Thanks to these big investments, while the world was experiencing major health system problems in the Covid-19 pandemic, the health system in Turkey has overcome this epidemic and has never had an intensive care unit and respiratory device problem. This example has been a major test of the Turkish health system recently and the Turkish health system got full marks from this exam. Active 31 hospitals in Turkey have Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation. The hospital that has the standards to receive this document is very limited around the world. However, Turkey has demonstrated its success in this regard and the number of hospitals with JCI accreditation is increasing day by day in Turkey.

Specifications that make Turkey strong in health tourism:

  • Turkey ranks first in the world in terms of medical education. Students from many countries of the world come to Turkey to take advantage of high-quality medical education in Turkey. The reason why medical education in Turkey is of high quality is because it has hundreds of professors who have achieved firsts around the world. Thanks to these scientists, the health system in Turkey is very developed, as well as medical students who study, taking advantage of this accumulation, receive an education that is well above world standards.
  • Turkey has great thermal underground resources thanks to its geopolitical position. In fact, Turkey ranks first in the European continent in terms of thermal underground resource wealth. Thanks to thermal underground sources, many treatment methods have been developed in Turkey. These treatments allow some diseases that require surgery to be treated without medical intervention thanks to early detection.
  • Due to the difference between Turkish Lira and foreign exchange rates in Turkey, it remains more economical among other developed countries. The exchange rate of the Turkish lira is low, but the service quality in Turkey ranks first in the world.
  • A patient who comes to Turkey can be treated in Turkey for less than the treatment fee s/he has to pay in his/her own country, stay in good hotels, experience different touristic and historical experiences, and experience Turkish cuisine, which is one of the best gastronomy in the world. All of these services are offered in Turkey in a very high quality and safe way.
  • Thanks to its geopolitical position, Turkey is a bridge connecting Europe to Asia. Again, thanks to its geopolitical location, Turkey is among the rare countries where four seasons are experienced. Due to the fact that it is surrounded by the seas on three sides, Turkey is the number one seaside holiday destination in summer. Thanks to its high mountains, Turkey has many olympic and touristic facilities that allow winter sports in winter. While a tropical climate and green nature can be found on the Black Sea coasts of Turkey, the fairy chimneys that the whole world comes to see, such as Cappadocia, are located in a steppe climate. In summary, it is possible to have a holiday in Turkey in all climates and conditions. According to the request of the person, the Fibemed Healthcare team helps the patients to have an unforgettable holiday as well as their treatment.
