Thinktanks connecting for Better Future 

Vikas Malik CEO of India Health Help recently met Dr. Mahesh Sharma (Minister of state of culture and Tourism). Discussions regarding how to sort out the the problems of Translators/Tarjumans in medical tourism industry took place in this meeting.

It involved as a detailed discussion to aid better access to Indian medical facilities to the people of Afghanistan.

With such public-private collaborations, India is poised to remain the number one country when it comes to medical tourism. With sincere efforts and working in close collaboration with the Government of India, this is something which is easily achievable in the coming years.

Other things discussed in the landmark meeting included steps taken to increase transparency in operation related to medical tourism and how to provide direct connection between off-shore patients and Indian doctors.

Nature of medical procedures carried out as part of medical tourism

A wide range of medical procedures are carried out as part of medical tourism. These include beauty procedures such as organ transplant, cancer surgery, brain tumor surgery as well as hip and knee replacements and neuro surgeries. 

Advantages of choosing India as the destination

There are many reasons why India has emerged as the final destination for medical tourists is primarily because of the cost factor which is involved. Although the cost of any medical treatment to be administered to a patient depends on many factors, nevertheless, a knee replacement surgery which costs approximately $ 30, 000 in the USA, the same procedure can be done in India at a 40% to 60% lower rate. 

This is quite a significant amount which cannot be ignored. Moreover, India also has the same level of advanced and sophisticated medical equipments coupled with well qualified and well read team of medical practitioners which makes it a popular destination for carrying complex medical procedures.

Afghanistan gets Better Access to Indian Medical Facilities

It is a known fact that Indian doctors are not just intelligent, skilled and good at their work but they are also at par with the rest of their counterparts practicing in different parts of the world. This is evident from the growing demand for Indian medical practitioners and facilities in countries like Afghanistan.

Afghanistan now has better access to medical facilities thanks to the boost in medical tourism in India.

Companies like India Health Help are going all out to help patients from Afghanistan get access to Indian medical facilities in a convenient and reliable way. This is being seen as another step in promoting better relations between India and Afghanistan.

People in Afghanistan often experience great difficulty when it comes to availing good quality medical aid. This is either because the facilities are not available or even if they are, they are way too expensive for a common person to be able to afford. 

With a view to provide such people with high quality medical aid at cost effective rates, medical tourism is garnering the support of the Government of Afghanistan

The CEO of Indian Health Help, Vikas Malik recently met with the former president Mr. Hamid Karzai and current prime minister Mr. Abdullah Abdullah​ of Afghanistan ​and have earned their support on this arrangement. 

Medical tourism companies like India Health help are furthering this mission as they are supported by 24 best hospitals​ and 1800+ ​best ​doctors​ from India​.

This initiative has been introduced keeping in mind a simple logic that if and when a common man in Afghanistan suffers from something as common as a cardiac arrest, he must be provided with good quality medical aid which at the same is cost effective and reasonable as well. 

Compared to the cost of medical facilities in countries like USA or the UK, India also offers high quality and advanced treatments and that too, at reasonable costs. 

Elaborating on India furthering its foothold in terms of medical tourism in Afghanistan, the official spokesperson of India Health Help further stated, “As a medium to achieve this purpose, we have opened up our help centre (office) right here in Kabul. No middlemen or translators involved and provide genuine advice from professionally qualified doctors only”.

​This is a novel and great concept not just in commercial terms, but also because of the fact that such initiatives helping in building as well as strengthening the existing ties of India with different countries of the world and create goodwill on the basis of that. However, at this stage what is required is to propagate this idea rather vigorously in order that majority of the population becomes aware of such an initiative. 

About Indian Health Help:
