The MHTC Partnership Program recognises healthcare facilities that provide exemplary service to International Patients
The Malaysia Healthcare Travel Council (MHTC) strives to enhance access to Malaysian healthcare services, for the benefit of both health travellers as well as Malaysian healthcare facilities.
Under our mandate, we undertake the function of a one-stop centre for the healthcare travel industry, for the promotion, business development, facilitation, networking, regulation and centre to handle all enquiries on health tourism in Malaysia. As part of our effort to promote Malaysia Healthcare globally, we work closely with industry stakeholders, particularly the private Malaysian healthcare institutions.
The MHTC Partnership Program recognises healthcare facilities that provide exemplary service to international patients, where members are screened by stringent criteria – in both, healthcare and supporting services – for participation in the Program. A certificate of registration with the MHTC is given by the Minister of Health Malaysia and is renewable every two years.
