Medical Tourism in India
Ministry of Tourism has initiated several measures to promote Medical Tourism. This includes promotion and overseas markets and production of publicity materials like brochure, CD and films etc. and their distribution in target markets.
Under the Market Development Scheme of Ministry of Tourism financial support is provided only to approved Medical Tourism Service Providers, i.e. representatives of hospitals accredited by Joint Commission International (JCI) and National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare Providers (NABH) and Medical Tourism facilitators (Travel Agents/Tour Operators) approved by Ministry of Tourism, Government of India and engaged in Medical Tourism subject to adherence to scheme guidelines and availability of funds. The Medical Tourism activity is mainly driven by private sector. The Ministry of Tourism only plays the role of facilitator in terms of marketing and promoting this in key markets.
