Over the years, the Mauritius healthcare sector has evolved to provide a vibrant ecosystem to local and international players, with the objective of encouraging them to consider our island as a destination to expand their current activities in the medical field. Attractive features including a pro-business environment, infrastructure, a pool of qualified medical staff, as well as our proximity to mainland Africa, have been contributing factors for the growth of this sector which now stands at 7.2%.
Growth in this sector clearly demonstrates the transitioning of Mauritius into becoming a Centre of Excellence in the medical field, catering of the needs of the local and foreign patients. The healthcare sector provides a plethora of services, which ranges from basic healthcare services to high-value activities such as hi-tech medicine, medical tourism, medical education, and wellness.
The development of the pharmaceutical industry forms part of the economic agenda of the Government of Mauritius as part of its diversification strategy and development of a new economic pillar geared towards servicing the African continent.
Mauritius is becoming popular as a go-to destination for medical tourism. Currently, there is a number of specialty centres all over the island offering cosmetic surgery, dentistry work, rehabilitation, anxiety, hair transplanting, amongst others.
