Abstract

What some Indonesian medical tourists are looking for is everyday care they can’t get back home,” said Meghann Ormond, a professor of cultural geography at Wageningen University in the Netherlands. “This oftentimes has a lot to do with a lack of access to quality medication or cutting edge technology – lab analyses, for example. They don’t have access in Indonesia to doctors they trust. That’s why they’re crossing the borders.”
