The Medical Tourism Magazine Awards 2023

Let’s Celebrate Excellence in
Indian Medical Value Tourism!

Medical Tourism Magazine is heralding 2023 with a first-of-its-kind initiative—Medical Tourism Magazine Awards 2023! You have done a lot, achieved a lot. Now is pay time! Come, let the world see the commitment and excellence you brought into Medical Value Tourism in India and share the podium with the country’s glitterati in the tourism and travel space!

What is Medical Tourism Magazine Awards – 2023 all about?

It’s about bringing together the shining stars of Medical Value Tourism, who are now remaining faceless in the ocean of tourism players in the country. We wish Medical Value Tourism industry to emerge and be recognized as an independent segment of the tourism sector for the many value additions it offers to the domestic healthcare and hospitality industries and for the patrons who come to the Indian shores seeking high-quality healthcare at moderate prices.

Who are the key players here?

Unlike most other nations, India is uniquely placed in the Medical Value Tourism sector. India is the only nation in the world where the indigenous and modern medical systems are part of the mainstream. India has come a long way in modern healthcare, setting up some of the best and affordable hospitals with state-of-the-art facilities in the Global South. The country’s research outputs are valuable for several countries that share similar weather patterns and life habits, demographic characteristics and economic progress. India is also home to Ayurveda, the ancient Science of Life, and Yoga, the art of living a health life, free from drug-dependence and clinical and surgical interventions. Supplementing Ayurveda and Yoga are indigenous systems such as Siddha and Unani, both of which have evolved through centuries of research by practitioners spread all over the culturally diverse nation.
