Medical Value Travel

Certain prties in India want to replace the term medical tourism with the term medical value travel to better position India in the world marketplace. They feel the distance from countries that do medical tourism will highlight that India does more complex procedures including organ transplants.

“We need to position ourselves differently. We are not doing just low-end medical jobs. We have world-class facilities in expert areas such as heart care and even liver transplant. Countries in south-east Asia region which have done good in medical tourism most of the times do simple procedures. We don’t want to dilute our medical expertise by the term medical tourism.”
