Korea International Medical Association (KIMA) is a government-private joint initiative founded to promote Healthcare in Korea internationally. KIMA was established in 2007 with the name of CKMP (Council for Korea Medicine Overseas Promotion) and changed its name to KIMA as it has become an association. As an official organization for Medical Tourism, KIMA is supported by the Government, and serves as the "acting body" for a series of national policies in regard to medical travel.
“This event is important for KHIDI & KIMA since it is the ideal opportunity for us to promote the excellent medical technology and services of Korea to those in the medical tourism industry worldwide,” said Dr. SooWoong Kim, Director of International Healthcare Business at Korea Health Industry Development Institute (KHIDI) and Secretary General of Korea International Medical Association (KIMA). “We expect global stakeholders, including insurance companies, leaders of global enterprises and medical travel facilitators to learn what KHIDI and KIMA do in the global healthcare business,” he added.
This is the one event per year where Employers, Self Funded Health Plans, Insurance Companies, and Medical Tourism Facilitators that are looking to outsource healthcare overseas have the opportunity to meet with top International Hospitals and Medical Tourism Companies in one place for the ultimate networking event.
