At the opening of the International Health Conference (IHC) in Nusa Dua on Friday (10/11/23), Prof. Dr. Deby Vinski, M.Sc, Ph.D, who is IHC Chairman, said that the Sanur Special Economic Zone (KEK), which is planned as a center for medical tourism in Indonesia, will also be designed as a center for regenerative medicine (anti-aging) and stem cells, according to reporting from Berita Bali.
The opening of the stem cell service is slated for 2024, and together with the opening of anti-aging facilities at KEK Sanur, the hope is to tap into a potential income of IDR 150-trillion of medical tourism that goes abroad. Moreover, with the support of the new Health Law regulations that accommodate anti-aging, it is hoped that this will be a driving force for the development of medical tourism, say Berita Bali.
