Héctor Magaña Lara, a deputy from the municipality of Villa de Álvarez, in tehe Mexican state of Colima, presented an initiative to reform the Tourism Law of the State of Colima, seeking to promote Medical Tourism in this state.
On behalf of irepresentatives of PRI, PVEM, PT and Nueva Alianza, the initiative of Magaña Lara seeks to take advantage of the biodiversity of Colima and its connectivity with the rest of the country and the world, to offer quality health services required by the national and international users.
He mentioned that Mexico stands out internationally as an outstanding destination for services of dentistry, ophthalmology and cosmetic surgery, mainly in cities in the north of the country, which offer a full range of specialties and procedures, which compete directly with those offered in developed countries, at significantly more affordable prices.
In this regard, he said that data from the Federal Government’s Tourism Secretariat reveal that the main destinations for medical tourism are Tijuana, Mexicali, Ensenada, Rosarito, Tecate, Ciudad Juarez, Navojoa, Hermosillo, Reynosa, Matamoros, Nuevo Laredo, Mexico City, Monterrey, Cancun, Guadalajara, San Luis Potosí, Puebla and Querétaro.
“In these cities, health institutions have the specialties of greatest demand. Together with them, the State of Colima is expected to appear, as it has the conditions to stand out,” said Magaña Lara.
The initiative proposes to add to the Tourism Law of the State of Colima two articles in which it would be established that SECTUR, in coordination with the Ministry of Health and Health Services, promote medical tourism, as a strategic activity for developing a health and recovery infrastructure for tourists who demand high specialization, faster action and lower costs.
If the initiative is approved, the SECTUR should promote coordination with federal, state and municipal authorities, as well as with the private and social sectors, to encourage, training and development programs for medical service providers in the region; as well as promoting Medical Tourism in the state of Colima.
