GHTC provides leadership and support to the health tourism industry in developing health tourism policies around the world, advocating for responsible health tourism, and promoting health tourism as a driving force toward economic growth, inclusive development, and environmental sustainability.

We are determined to strengthen the capacity and effectiveness of GHTC, which has been acting within the framework of a comprehensive vision for the global and sustainable development of the health tourism sector since its establishment, through important collaborations in the new period we are in.

The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, which was founded in 1983 in the northern part of Cyprus, which has not lost its charm for centuries due to its strategic, political, commercial, and religious reasons and where the goddess of love and beauty Aphrodite was born, as well as inspiring the works of Shakespeare and Leonardo da Vinci, has a history of 10 thousand years. While serving the health tourism industry as a whole with the support of our member countries, we will work with all our strengths to add value to our members and increase the number of our members.

Located in the northern part of Cyprus, which is the third largest island in the Mediterranean and the largest island in the eastern Mediterranean, the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) offers its guests at least 300 days sunny days and endless advantages of accommodation in many different concepts, and it hosts nearly 4 times the number of tourists of its population in many areas such as holiday, health, congress, faith, wedding, gastronomy, sports, hiking and diving.

The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus also provides quality education at international standards to over 100 thousand students from more than 100 countries with its 21 internationally well-known universities. The TRNC also was one of the safest countries with a death rate of 8 per thousand cases during the Pandemic period, and became one of the most successful countries in ensuring the health and safety of its own people, students and tourists in its country.

Northern Cyprus, which has become a preferred brand in health tourism in the world thanks to its 80 percent success in IVF treatments, the advanced technology in use, and the price advantage it combines with its specialist physician staff, offers high-standard health services especially in heart issues, physical therapy, general surgery, orthopedics, oncology, aesthetics, dentistry, and hair transplantation.

In this new period, serving in accordance with the vision of the GHTC, we will attach special importance to developing mutual cooperation in the fields of health protection, development, and recovery by establishing cordial relations with each of the 56 member countries, as well as increasing the contacts between the member states and Northern Cyprus.

I heartfeltly wish you all a healthy life, happiness and prosperity
Dr. Ahmet Savaşan
