dc.description.abstractThis study examines various sites of international travel for medical care. Focusing primarily on Yemenis' medical travel to Jordan and other countries, the study explores a variety of issues and experiences of care-seeking abroad. Topics covered include state and institutional support for treatment outside the country, linkages between countries that facilitate movements, medical travellers' funding and logistical decisions, and therapeutic reputations leading to destination selection. The following examples of medical travel are also considered: the special receptions of Arab royalty, an advanced care facility in Scotland, and organ donors and recipients. This study is set within a context of increasing globalization, where advances in medical procedures and devices, communication, and transportation all contribute to people's ideas about where to go for medical care.
