Doctors who are members of the Indonesian diaspora are being encouraged to return to their homeland to practice.

This was made known by Indonesia’s Minister of State-Owned Enterprises, Erick Thohir, while speaking on the construction of the Bali International Hospital (BIH); projected to be completed in 2030.

The hospital is expected to provide quality healthcare in areas such as coronary care, aesthetic surgery, and cancer treatment to over 240,000 patients in the country and for medical tourists.

The Minister estimated that Indonesia needed 12,000 new doctors every year; and so the country’s ‘medical diaspora’ would be a welcome addition – proclaiming that “now is the time for diaspora doctors to come home.”
