India becoming medical tourism hub for Africans
In 2015, the Global Health Workforce Alliance has stated in its 2015 report that African nations have been facing a severe shortage of medical professionals and adequate health infrastructure. Moreover, in these nations health care is being inadequately funded. So, more and more people of these nations are visiting India to avail high-quality medical treatments at affordable costs.
According to the Indian high commissioner, in 2015, around 20,000 Nigerians have visited in India for various medical purposes like transplant surgeries, joint replacements, cardiac surgeries, kidney surgeries, dental surgeries etc.
WHY AFRICAN PATIENTS PREFER INDIA?
Since 1990, India has developed herself as a global leader in medical tourism. And, it has become possible because she boasts of her highly qualified doctors, latest medical technologies and unique treatments by following each and every rule of WHO ( World Health Organization ) and US Food and Drug Administration. Also, the costs for initiating high-quality medical treatments are quite affordable compared to countries like the US and the UK. For example, the cost of a kidney transplant in India is around $13,000, while the same treatment in the US is available at $3,00,000. This kidney transplant package of India generally includes surgery fee, consultation fee, medical check-up fee, AC cabin charge etc.
