Results: Management instability, the challenge of the macroeconomic environment and entrepreneurship, coherent policy and integrity of governance, budget and financial support, the challenges of the international environment, coordination and inter-organizational agreements are the most important causative factors affecting the implementation of tourism policy in Iran.
Conclusion: This paper, through the development of a conceptual framework that will strengthen the theoretical background of health tourism policy in developing and Asian countries, can solve the challenges of the Iranian health tourism policy and provides a valuable contribution to strengthening the concepts and frameworks in this regard.
