Pafos might turn into an experimental platform for testing medical tourism. This was announced by the (EVE) of Pafos and (FICC) of Israel. The following weeks there will be meetings from the both sides. There are several clinics in Pafos that will take part in a pilot project between the Israeli and Cypriot sides. Israel is a world recognized leader in the sphere of medical services, known to the whole world for his bone marrow transplantation operations, treatment of cardiological, oncological and neurological diseases, etc.
However, for citizens of the adjacent countries of the Arab world, visiting Israel is not always politically convenient. And Cyprus in this case can be a convenient alternative, providing the necessary infrastructure. In turn, Israel will invest in the development of this infrastructure and will provide the required professional level: according to the idea, Israeli specialists will work part of the time in Paphos, while simultaneously training their Cypriot counterparts.
