Since the development of medical and health tourism is one of the priority areas for the development of the state economy,
the GHTF forum was discussed and supported during the meeting on the development of medical tourism in Truskavets resort, chaired by the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
Also, the GHTF is supported by the Kyiv State Administration, the capital of Ukraine.
Moreover, GHTF is supported by both the executive authorities of Ukraine and the legislative.



The Global Health Travel Travel Council was established on March 23, 2013 in Monaco immediately after the International Medical Travel Exhibition and Conference - IMTEC 2013 with the participation of 38 countries.
Ukraine, represented by the Ukrainian Association of Medical Tourism, has become one of the founding countries of the GHTC and over the next years has always taken an active position in its activities. This led to the fact that during the annual GHTC General Assembly in April 2019 in Baku, by open vote, Violetta Yanyshevska, the President of UAMT was elected as President of the GHTC and Ukraine was determined as the venue for the Global Forum of Medical Tourism GHTF 2020.
