Dubai pitches for more health tourists by 2020

Dubai Health Authority (DHA) predicts that the number of medical tourists to the emirate would reach millions annually by the end of the decade. This will bring billions of dollars into Dubai’s economy.

 “Dubai has the potential but I do feel they have a long way to go,”
