As part of the study of the features of management aspects of health tourism development, the forms of its spatial organization – tourist destination and tourist cluster are considered. Destination and tourist cluster are considered as two systems to meet the tourist's needs: destination creates conditions for health tourism organization at the level of a particular region, forming a cluster in health tourism is aimed at supporting and developing a destination as a competitive local specific tourist product.
