Medical tourism booms in India, but at what cost?
A Lancet Report
The Lancet "The medical tourism industry is growing fast, especially in emerging markets like India. The Confederation of Indian Industry predicts that India will see revenues of US$2 billion from medical tourism by 2012. Captivated by this economic potential, the Indian Government is actively courting international patients. Yet despite the industry's predicted growth of 30% in India, the country has not produced any national medical guidelines on this issue."
