Punjab promotes medical tourism

 

The Punjab government seeks to boost medical tourism in the state, particularly for non-resident Indians (NRI).

The medical tourism policy will be focused on medical facilities for NRIs and other patients from abroad seeking economical medical treatment- particularly from Pakistan and Afghanistan.

The Tourism Department is considering setting up a state level medical tourism council called the Punjab Association of Health Tourism.

Areas to promote include treatment and transplants of major human organs, hips, shoulders and knees are not lasting as the population lives longer and the lifestyle related diseases are on the rise.
