Brazil’s growing influence on the world stage is largely in part due to its booming economy and poses itself to one of the world’s dominate economies in the future. Currently, major investments in its infrastructure including airports, roads, public transport and tourism services are underway, as Brazilian authorities are trying to showcase the country in a successful light and working hard to transform and reinforce the country’s image by turning it into a major tourism destination. A hugely diverse country, this diversity in social, economic and health conditions is also reflected in healthcare delivery. Large cities like Rio de Janeiro, Porto Alegre and particularly São Paulo host the most advanced forms of medical technology and the most qualified health professionals. Brazil has developed into a center of excellence for healthcare in Latin America, with major universities that support research, teaching and training of medical professionals.
Brazil was the first country with an institution outside the United States to be accredited by the Joint Commission International in 1999 when the program was launched and now has 25 JCI accredited hospitals and institutions. Medical Tourism to Brazil is projected to grow 35% in the next five years, Sao Paulo, Brazil’s largest city, leads in terms of healthcare infrastructure and medical tourism facilities. Some of the hospitals and clinics are among the best in Latin America, embracing the latest technology, highly qualified healthcare professionals and continuous improvement of staff training and technological resources.
“Brazil has enjoyed a reputation for its outstanding plastic and cosmetic surgeons, considered as some of the world’s best. With a growing and more educated middle class, Brazil has developed a culture of forming great healthcare professionals, with strict norms and standards of practice,” says Jidapa Julakasilp, Managing Director at myMEDHoliday.com. “As the world gets ready in anticipation of the World Cup and Olympic Games, Brazil must effectively deal with the large influx of foreign visitors, and this can only positively boost its medical tourism industry. Brazil is opening more economic and social horizons by growing medical tourism, lead mostly by the high qualification of Brazilian healthcare professionals.”
