Medical tourism is getting increasingly popular worldwide nowadays. Belarus is among the countries where medical tourism is successfully developing. It has been providing healthcare services to foreigners for a long time.

- Exceptional quality of medical and nursing services and advanced equipment in hospitals;
- Cutting-edge medical technologies and progressive treatment methods;

Apart from improving the quality of medical services and efficiency of treatment, Belarusian healthcare facilities are constantly working to expand the variety of high-tech and sophisticated surgeries.
That’s the reason why Belarus holds a leading position in health and demographic indicators among the CIS countries and gets high respect of the global health community.
