The aim of this article is to contribute towards greater theoretical and empirical understanding about medical tourism developments globally. This evidence leads us to examine some widely-held assumptions regarding the size and shape of global medical travel.

(2) How should any emerging global industry be understood and explained? (3) Given this analysis and market understanding how, if at all, can national governments stimulate activity?
