How it works:
- Over the years, Lebanon have become popular as a cosmetic and medical tourism hub for tourists from Europe, the Gulf as well as from neighbouring countries such as Iraq (healthcare system in disarray).
- However, case such as botched surgeries, fake medical practitioners as well as counterfeit drugs began rising. In response, the government put in place a series of measures to clamp down on these since 2015.
Places to beware:
What to do:
- Seek medical help from reputable sources.
