The Director, and Promoter, Medijourn, Shaaz Mehmood, in a talk with Kalyani Sharma emphasizes that a rise in medical value travel providers in India is an encouraging sign for this business along with an indicator of the unexplored potential for public-private collaboration

Can you say something on the consequences of COVID on India as well as world’s medical tourism scenario?

As per the data from the Indian Institute of Public Administration, in 2019, around 697,453 medical tourists visited India alone for undergoing medical treatment. He said that they came across an important decline in this number with the beginning of the pandemic, due to universal lockdowns and restrictions in travel. But, in 2021, as countries opened up their boundaries, there was a constant revival and considerable rebirth in the world medical tourism sector.

So, they definitely believe that by next year, India will account for 6 per cent of the world medical value travel market share. International citizens in fact from several African, Asian, and European countries are relying on the healthcare institutions of India and are relieved by the flattened curve of COVID-19 and the removal of different restrictions in travel. This devastating urge for vital healthcare services among patients from abroad explains their dependence on the thriving healthcare industry of India and the suffering of several people who were not able to enter while the pandemic affected their daily lives.
