The health sector in Antigua & Barbuda enjoys a well-developed network of public and private healthcare facilities, including a cancer treatment centre, national hospital, medical centres and a multi-million dollar state-of-the-art hospital and medical complex in construction.
Additionally, the islands have forged themselves as the first wellness destination in the Caribbean. The climate, beaches, sea and nature are all conducive to good health and well-being, which is complemented by the fantastic spas, sporting facilities and healthy and delicious cuisine on offer.
In a forward-thinking stride, the government has laid the groundwork and enacted progressive legislation, opening doors to visitors seeking revolutionary medical marijuana treatments and cutting-edge stem cell therapies, empowering individuals to embark on a transformative path to well-being.
With the global medical tourism sector worth several hundred billion dollars, Antigua & Barbuda is well positioned to take advantage of this trend with its world-class medical facilities, treatment centres and even Eric Clapton’s famous addiction clinic.
