The 2020-2021 Medical Tourism Index, the top ranking of the sector, included nine Latin American nations among the 46 most attractive countries for Americans to receive health services: Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Argentina, Colombia, Brazil, Panama, Jamaica, Mexico and Guatemala, which motivates us to draw up joint strategies to strengthen our regional positioning, the release states.
