Demand for Medical Tourism Post Challenging Times by DR PREM JAGYASI
News of vaccine release has created fresh hopes of revival but the situation is yet too far from normal. Whatever may be the situation with Covid-19, the demand for healthcare services is shooting up causing additional strain to the worn-out healthcare infrastructure all over the world.
Many countries, for example, in Africa, South America, and Asia lack inadequate resources to meet the growing healthcare needs, and therefore, patients will continue to look for better options beyond the border. Medical tourism will grow dramatically and evolve in a different model contributing to reshaping global healthcare.
Is it that patients will always have to take the strenuous travel to avail of better treatment facilities? The time is high to think of medical tourism from different perspectives. Global collaboration and coordination would be the key to shaping tomorrow’s medical tourism market.
