DXH Initiative Boosts Medical Tourism In Dubai

The medical tourism sector in Dubai has undergone rapid recent growth as the city has adopted and implemented the latest technologies in the healthcare sector ensuring world-class medical service. An integrated programme called Dubai Health Experience (DXH) was launched in April 2016 by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, as a continuation of the ‘Dubai, a Global Destination for Medical Tourism’ project. It targets half a million international patients by 2020. As one of the four most-visited cities in the world, DXH works to cross-promote Dubai ’s existing tourism infrastructure and attractions with its 35,000 health specialists at 3,000 private health facilities ranging from hospitals and clinics to day surgery centres. Among its many award-winning innovations, the pioneering DXH mobile app has been designed to allow medical tourists quick access to information about hospitals and clinics, doctors and DXH medical packages at their convenience
