India and Medical Tourism
Despite—or because of—the global economic downturn, India's medical travel industry is clipping along at a 30 percent growth rate annually. India welcomes most of its cross-border travelers from the immediate region (e.g. Bangladesh, the Turkic States, the Middle East and East Africa). However, some of those gains have arisen from increasing numbers of Americans, Canadians, and Europeans seeking treatment, particularly the more expensive cardiac and orthopedic surgeries, for which health travelers can save tens of thousands of dollars compared to the cost of treatment at home. India's official national health policy encourages medical travel as part of its economy's "export" activities, although the services are performed within India. The government uses revenues generated from medical travel to increase its holdings in foreign currency. With government and corporate investment solidly behind its healthcare system, more international hospitals and super-specialty centers are opening every year.
