Abstract

In the last decade India’s healthcare sector has been becoming global. Medical tourism is an example of how India is profiting from globalisation. It is a new form of consumer diplomacy, whereby foreigners who receive medical services in India help the country to promote itself as a business and tourism destination. In this age of globalisation, patients are shopping for affordable healthcare worldwide, giving rise to the phenomenon known as Medical Tourism. India is emerging as a preferred destination because it has a large number of hospitals with world-class infrastructure, equipment and many competent medical practitioners
