Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Globalization is creating an extraordinary transformation to the delivery, financing and access of healthcare throughout the world. Improving standards of treatment, based on higher international standards of care and the offering of far more affordable services, is positioning third-world countries as viable participants in a more global healthcare system. The Egyptian healthcare system is evolving to meet these higher expectations in an effort to attract wealthier international tourists. It is important to understand Egypt's evolving transformation into a medical service destination so policymakers may understand the emerging ethical cocnerns this evolution may impose on this third-world and traditionally underserved population.
