Over the years, Malaysia has established itself as the trusted destination for healthcare travellers from Bangladesh, seeking quality medical treatments and services to complement the healthcare services in their country.

With a strong emphasis on patient safety, Malaysia ensures that individuals receive top-notch care and peace of mind. As a renowned global halal hub, Malaysia Healthcare provides halal menus, prayer facilities at hospitals, and porcine-free medical products such as sutures and vaccines. 

It is equipped with Muslim medical professionals and personnel, both male and female, ensuring the needs of Muslim healthcare travellers are carefully incorporated into every step of the healthcare travel journey.

To bring Malaysian healthcare facilities to the doorsteps of Bangladeshi medical travellers, MHTC introduced five prestigious hospitals at the 6th International Health Tourism and Services Expo Bangladesh 2023. Institut Jantung Negara (National Heart Institute), Mahkota Medical Centre, Subang Jaya Medical Centre, Prince Court Medical Centre, and KPJ Damansara Specialist Hospital were among the five hospitals present at the International Health Tourism and Services Expo, specializing in oncology, fertility, and cardiology.

Malaysia Healthcare, spearheaded by the Malaysia Healthcare Travel Council (MHTC), a dedicated agency established under the Ministry of Health Malaysia, is at the forefront of the country's healthcare travel industry. MHTC's goal is to elevate the healthcare travel experience in Malaysia by blending exceptional hospitality with world-class services.

Through fruitful partnerships with public and private entities, MHTC is dedicated to positioning Malaysia as a leading global healthcare destination, offering affordable, easily accessible, and top-quality medical services.

"Our leading private hospitals in Malaysia consistently surpass expectations in providing world-class treatments, drawing patients from across the globe who seek exceptional medical care," highlights Farizal B Jaafar, acting chief executive officer of Malaysia Healthcare Travel Council.

This commitment to excellence, innovation, and compassionate patient care solidifies Malaysia's position as a premier healthcare destination.

To ensure a more seamless end-to-end patient experience for Bangladesh healthcare travellers and further strengthen the Malaysia Healthcare brand in Bangladesh, MHTC has partnered with GD Assist Limited (GD Assist) in October 2022 as MHTC's exclusive referral partner and official representative in Bangladesh. 

GD Assist has been a longtime advocate of Malaysian healthcare in Bangladesh and has years of experience working closely with healthcare travellers' journeys to Malaysia. 

MHTC also recently established partnerships with several other local partners in Bangladesh, namely Bangladesh Malaysia Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Prime Bank Limited, Shimanto Bank Limited, and the Bangladesh Cricket Board.

Malaysia Healthcare places the patient experience at the forefront of efforts to rebuild the industry. Recognizing the significance of digitalization, MHTC recently launched the One Stop Portal (OSP), a trusted digital platform that serves as the gateway to Malaysia Healthcare for healthcare travellers. 

Through the OSP, healthcare travellers from Bangladesh can access a range of streamlined services and information, ensuring a seamless start to their healthcare journey. In addition to the OSP, MHTC has also implemented an efficient e-Visa Medical platform to enhance the experience for Bangladeshi healthcare travellers. 

Healthcare travellers from Bangladesh can obtain a medical visa within a shorter timeframe, typically three to five working days. This expedites the application process and allows for more efficient extensions of stay for the patient and medical companions.
