Partnership helps medical travel from Papua New Guinea

According to, Paradise Private Hospital (PPH) in Papua New Guinea (PNG) has signed a partnership with Philippines medical travel agency Health & Leisure (H&L) to facilitate medical travel from PNG to the Philippines.

Under the agreement, H&L will market, arrange and sell medical tourism packages to clients from within and outside the Philippines. PPH will be responsible for referring patients to the Philippines and will ensure they are physically and psychologically healthy and fit for the treatment and medical travel. PPH will become the referral hospital in PNG to all the main hospitals in the Philippines for tertiary level healthcare.

A lack of medical facilities drives the outbound tourism from Papua New Guinea. For further information on inbound medical tourism to the Philippines, visit the IMTJ Country Profile.
