Abstract International medical travel is increasingly big business. Using Indonesian patient-consumers’transport experiences in the pursuit of private medical care in Malaysia, this paper explores howtransport operators and infrastructure are responding and adjusting to the embodied specificities of the growing market’s access and travel needs. In offering faster and more frequent linkages, theyhave both expanded the physical and geo-political scope and increased the immediacy of careprovision. This underscores the value of examining how the mobile spaces of transport common tointernational medical travel actively intersect with, blur and re-articulate diverse understandings of ill-health and impairment, care and subjectivity.
