This performance is due to the marketing strategy of the Board of Investment (BOI) to position the country as a center for medical tourism.
Indeed, most of those who have made the trip to Mauritius come for care related to car-diology the ophthamologie, orthopedics, cosmetic surgery, fertility treatment and hair transplant. They come in Mauritius not only because of the value but also the presence of advanced medicine. Several foreign investors have also invested in Mauritius in health institutions. In addition, most foreign patients they come from Europe, India, South Africa, the Middle East and Asia.
Indeed, many foreign medical institutions are already established in Mauritius . And according to the analysis, at least half of the patients who visited the island in recent years are from Madagascar, Reunion, Seychelles and the Comoros. The trend has changed, however, as many now pviennent of Europe, South Africa and Asia. Furthermore, many foreign companies are now present on Mauritian soil to provide care. Some include Fortis Clinique Darné (a joint venture between Fortis Health Care India and CIEL Group), Apollo Bramwell Hospital (a joint venture between the Apollo Group of India and the British American Investment Group), the Dr. Agarwal's Eye Hospital and Mauritius Metropolis (another joint venture between Metropolis and Heathcare Bramser Lab Services).
It should also be noted that many spe-ized centers have also opened their doors. Some include the Indian Ocean cosmetically Center, Dental Clinic Dentcare, Harley Street Fertility Centre and Rehabilitation Centre Mariana. All these centers also receive foreign patients. So it is with the collaboration of the private sector that the BOI conducts its marketing campaign to promote medical tourism.
