Developed nations are way ahead of developing regions in relation to advanced medical infrastructure, and, hence quality care. But are the medical services affordable to the population at large? Well, not seemingly so in recent years. In this light, a few emerging economies are showing massive potential in Medial Value Travel (MVT). India’s MVT is fast making growing in scope if you are to believe a recent report by Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI). The study was done in collaboration by Ernst & Young.
The report sheds light on some interesting findings on proponents of India’s medical tourism. Key regions that contribute to its MVT are Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and SAARC nations. Of the various countries, a major proportion of medical travelers are from Bangladesh. Cities that are offering medical tourism comprise Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore, Kolkata, and Hyderabad.
India Combine Traditional Treatments with Modern Medical Science
Numerous factors make India rise in stature as a destination for offering quality patient care and at less cost than several developed nations. For one, the cultural underpinning toward integrating traditional care with modern medical treatment is worth mentioning. Further, post-operative care is attractive. To put this in perspective, the mortality rate after 30 days of surgery in the nation is less than the U.S.
Then, there are macroeconomic factors. Tens of thousands of people around the world visit India every year to explore its cultural heritage. These tourists at times seek world class treatments along with travel pleasure that India has to offer.
India wellness market is also expanding on the back of policies that the Government has been adopting. National Medical Value Travel Committee at FICCI has been at the forefront in giving recommendations to further boost the value and make India ahead in holistic medical care.
