Medical Value Travel
India is on a fast pace of growth as a Medical Value Travel hub. Having already made its mark in Space Science, Information Technology, Genetic Science and Pharmaceutical Manufacturing India is now and beginning to recognize the huge potential of health tourism. The country is already perceived as a major tourism destination for its spirituality, closeness to nature, low cost-structure and relative freedom from health scares like SARS and Bird flu. Health tourism is to be the next boom. The healthcare system in India is as good as the best in the world. India has a good number of JCI (Joint Commission International) accredited hospitals which can provide care at par or above global standards and compares well with other countries in Asia. India has some of the finest doctors and health professionals in the world and there is a high level of competency and capability in adoption of newer technologies, innovation and fresh treatment methods.
Kerala, the gorgeous southern state of India is a tourist's paradise. The National Geographic Traveler has listed Kerala as one of the fifty "must-see" places in the world. Being blessed with a salubrious climate and the abundant bounty of nature Kerala beckons tourists from all across the globe. The narrow strip of land has rolling hills, verdant plains, placid lakes and beckoning beaches in close proximity. Add to these a population of educated, friendly, hospitable people, and a distinctive and delectable Kerala cuisine, you have the ingredients of a memorable tourism experience.
Kerala is already familiar in health circles abroad as an Ayurveda destination and Kerala has already spread its message all over the world. Many eminent doctors, nurses and other health professionals from Kerala have migrated in large numbers worldwide and have gained recognition and appreciation for their diligence in work and for their pleasing and helpful disposition.
