Medical tourism or health tourism is the travel of people to another country for the purpose of obtaining medical treatment in that country.

Traditionally, people would travel from less developed countries to major medical centers in highly developed countries for medical treatment that was unavailable in their own communities, The recent trend is for people to travel from developed countries to third world countries for medical treatments because of cost consideration, though the traditional pattern still continues.

Another reason for travel for medical treatment is because some treatments may not be legal in the home country, such as some fertility procedures.
