Africa's Medical Tourism Market Outlook 2022: How the COVID-19 Pandemic have Changed the Rules of Engagement

·4 min read

Dublin, Sept. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Medical Tourism 2022: African Potential" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The winds of change are sweeping across African medical tourism.
