Turkish Minister of Health Mehmet Muezzinoglu said on Sunday that Turkey was one of the few tourism destinations which recorded growth in recent years in the worldwide medical tourism market.

Stating that Russia and the Turkic republics were the leading countries that prefer Turkey for the medical tourism, Muezzinoglu said,"There is currently an income of $2.5 billion, we aim to increase this figure over $5 billion."

Muezzinoglu, indicating that there was a population of 1 billion living in the nearby geography of Turkey, said "Turkey is one of the few tourism destinations which has experienced growth in recent years in the worldwide medical tourism market."

"The position that Turkey has reached today in the healthcare sector could not have been foreseen 10 years ago. Turkey, rising rapidly in a globalizing world, has further developments in health tourism which is already showing an upward slope in increasing numbers" Turkish minister added.
