Cyprus is a well-known tourist destination in the Mediterranean region and its tourism sector plays a vital role in the economy of the country. All these years, the success of Cyprus was based on the sea and sun concept  - the beautiful weather, the nice beaches and the luxurious accommodation. However, Cyprus is not only sea and sun. It is also an Island with history and culture. It has all these so-called “special interests” for tourists, and health tourism is part of that.

Health tourism is a combination of the tourism industry and the health sector. Cyprus is an already established tourism destination with excellent infrastructure with many years of experience. Adding the well proven medical infrastructure, the modern and technologically sophisticated hospitals, highly qualified specialist consultants, doctors, nurses, technical staff and the very high standards of hygiene, and while English widely spoken throughout the island, Cyprus is indeed a promising health tourism destination.

Undoublty the increasing expansion of health tourism over the past few years has raised the need to establish an organisation whose main concern would be to place Cyprus on the global medical tourism map. The Cyprus Health Services Promotion Board (CHSPB) is a non-profit organization that was founded in November 2006 after an initiative taken by the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI), aiming mainly to the development and promotion of Cyprus as a Health Centre. Since then the CHSPB has become the main point of contact for health tourism related issues in Cyprus. It is worth noting that all our members are approved and licensed by the Cyprus Government while some of them have also moved a step ahead by signing contracts to obtain international accreditation standards from accrediting bodies approved by the ISQUA.

Currently we are witnessing an outbreak of gout – How to recognize the disease?

Christmas and New Year festivities with tables laden with food cause people an outbreak of gout. For some people, excessive consumption of food ends in the aggravation of the disease. With others, gout symptoms appear for the first time in the post-holiday period.

Gout symptoms are a sudden, sharp pain which often starts at night, a swelling and redness in some of the joints, most often at the base of fingers or  in a  knee joint.

Gout is one of the oldest diseases mentioned in world history. It has been documented more than 2 500 years before Christ by ancient Egyptians. Gout has been well-researched and understood. However, the myth of its incurability is still alive.

Gout is curable

"Gout is a rare form of arthritis which is curable,” Anna Mihailova, the rheumatologist of the ORTO clinic, stresses. As usual in the post-holiday period, the number of her gout patients has noticeably increased. The doctor emphasizes that even though gout symptoms pass a few days after the outbreak, they should not be treated lightly and a doctor should be consulted. Gout is seldom limited to one outbreak. If the disease is left untreated, it can affect more and more joints and tissues, damage them and become harder to treat.
