This case study will analyse three different reports based on the topic of medical tourism. It is a quite new trend for people who cannot afford treatments in their home country to go abroad to have medical treatments and surgeries at a lower price and with a service quality which almost reach the same standards of the developed countries. The Asian countries are the main destinations for medical tourism as they have high-qualified doctors and their prices are unbeatable by those which are applied in the developed countries.
