Through a series of chapters the book engages with key issues such as the role of regulatory and policy structures in influencing medical and health tourism related mobilities.

"This book examines the two sides of the industry: medical tourism for services legal in the patient’s home country (e.g., cardiac bypass, hip replacements, etc.) where patients travel to places such as India, Thailand and Mexico to reduce costs, avoid queues, or qualify for insurance incentives, and medical tourism for services illegal in the home country (organ purchase, abortion, assisted suicide, fertility services, and experimental stem cell treatments)."

"This book uniquely focuses on the supply side of wellness tourism from a destination perspective in terms of the generation and delivery of products and services for tourists who seek to maintain and improve their health. This approach provides a better understanding of how wellness tourism destinations develop and explores the specific drivers of that growth in a destination context and how destinations successfully compete against each other in globalised market place. A range of wellness destination development and management issues are examined including the importance of authenticity, an appropriate policy framework, delivery of high quality goods and services, participation of a broad range of stakeholders and the development of networks and clusters as well as collaborative strategies essential for a successful development and management of a wellness tourism destination. International case studies and examples from established and new wellness tourism destinations are integrated throughout. "
