Medical Tourism - Present Status & Challenges

C. Vijay Mohan Reddy1 Rahulreddy.C.2.

Abstract
Medical tourism or Health tourism is fast growing sector of medical marketing in INDIA and in many
countries. The international health care market place emerged in the late 19th century when patients from
less developed parts of the world began to travel to major medical centres in Europe and the United States
to have diagnostic evaluation and treatment that was not available in their own countries. The situation is
very different in the medical tourism model, where patients from highly developed nations travel to less
developed countries, bypassing medical care that is offered in their own country but is inaccessible or more
expensive to them. Another reason for travel for medical treatment is because some treatments may not be
legal in the home country, such as some fertility procedures... People with rare genetic disorders may travel
to another country where treatment of these conditions is better understood. Every type of health care,
including psychiatry, alternative treatments, convalescent care and even burial services are available as a
part of medical tourism.

Key words: Keywords:  Medical Tourism  Health Tourism  Health-care Tourism
