Jordan is ranked as the leader in the Arab region and the fifth in the world in terms of medical tourism. The country’s advanced healthcare system is a combination of 103 public and private hospitals and about 700 healthcare centers spread across Jordan, offering high-quality medical treatment at competitive prices. According to the World Bank, Jordan offers the best healthcare services in the Middle East. This has made it a preferred destination for patients from across the Middle East, particularly Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Sudan, Libya and Yemen.
Under the Jordan Economic Growth Plan (2018 – 2022), the healthcare sector policies aim to achieve several objectives, most notably improve the sustainability of the quality and safety of healthcare services, promote investment in medical tourism and support national pharmaceutical industries.
