    Jordan's security index leap to reflect positively medical tourism - PHA-

    November 21, 2021

    Amman, Nov. 20 (Petra) -- Ahmed al-Ahmad, member of the Board of Directors of the Private Hospitals Association (PHA), expressed optimism for the return of medical tourism as the sector's top earner, after Jordan made a big leap on the Gallup Law and Order Index, going from the 34th to 16th place globally.

    In a press statement on Saturday, al-Ahmad said that Jordan's progress reflects the extent of the rule of law, security and safety in the Kingdom, adding that this progress will prop up the tourism sector, namely medical tourism.

    These indicators, he underlined, strongly support the efforts of the private sector to attract foreign investments and promote national tourism, which will increase job opportunities and reduce unemployment rates.

    Al-Ahmad said that private hospitals have local and international accreditations and operate according to international standards. Additionally, medical devices and advanced equipment are available, including advanced laboratories, radiology, nuclear medicine and oncology centers.

    He highlighted the top-notch quality of medical services provided in the Kingdom, in addition to the affordable prices of treatment compared to countries in the region and Europe.

    Moreover, therapeutic resorts and hospital centers are spread across Jordan, such as the Dead Sea and Ma'in Hot Springs, he stated.

    Earlier, the Gallup International Association (GIA) released its 2021 Law and Order report, which included 115 countries. The report relied in its scientific research on a number of sub-indicators, top of which are gauging people's sense of personal security and their personal experiences with crime and law enforcement.
