Taiwan is a mountainous island country located in Southeast Asia. As one of the original four ‘Asian tigers,’ Taiwan has seen huge economic development in the last 40 years to become one of the world’s true economic powerhouses. Originally known for producing inexpensive goods, Taiwan has emerged as a global leader in the production of high tech products. In fact, Taiwan currently produces 85% of the world’s PC components. With direct flights from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver, and Toronto, Taiwan is also one of the closest destinations in Asia.
Taiwan Medical Care
Although Taiwan falls into an unusual designation as it is often debated whether it is a true country or not, one thing is for sure, it has world-class medical care. The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) actually ranked Taiwan healthcare as the second best system in the world based on 27 metrics, second only to Sweden. In addition, it is a model often studied by countries like the United States because its efficiency in its healthcare system is the best in the world and four times greater than the American system. Taiwan has 12 hospitals accredited by The Joint Commission International (JCI) and is aggressively courting North American medical tourists with some of the best prices on orthopedic surgery in the world. One of the country’s specialties is orthopedic surgery with many highly skilled surgeons. In fact, most Taiwanese surgeons study abroad, some at top US institutions.
