Kathmandu, Aug 3 . The concept of Medical Tourism in Nepal is developed with the objective of promoting healthcare services exports from Nepal.
This activity is organized by the Explore Productive Chamber of Commerce (EPCC). EPCC is a Nepalese multinational chamber of commerce established to promote the products, services and Investment globally with global franchising business module. We have directly presence in 12 countries to explore the network. It can be attended by general practitioners and specialists, nurses, pharmacists and other health workers, medical and nursing students and volunteers/Palliative care in the international world.
We want to thank to support us to ministry of Health, Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, Nepal Tourism Board and NATTA for supporting medical Tourism Asia Expo – 2018. Medical tourism occurs when consumers elect to travel across international borders with the intention of receiving some form of medical treatment.
This treatment may span the full range of medical services, but most commonly includes dental care, cosmetic surgery, elective surgery, and fertility treatment. Healthcare Summit aims at bringing together the Healthcare providers, Healthcare Professionals, Healthcare Administrators, Physicians, Healthcare Specialists, Healthcare Workers, Healthcare Technicians, Primary care Providers, Professors and Students in all the areas of Healthcare & Technologies.
We are focusing on Academic, Scientific and Business meetings, discussions and exhibitions in different verticals and horizontals like Medicine, Pharmaceutical, Nursing, Health science, Technology and Business to promote Medical tourism in Nepal. With members from around the world focused on learning about Healthcare & Technologies and its advances; this is your best opportunity to reach the largest assemblage of participants from the Healthcare and Technologies community.
We have international speakers from the SAARC and national renowned speakers to speak and share the experience to develop Medical Tourism in Nepal.
Nepal really needs to materialize the concept of medical tourism where travelers can utilize high quality medical services during their sightseeing trips. Nepal also needs to intertwine the research in physical sciences, biology, engineering, economics, and public health and think seriously about solving problems of complex systems in a holistic approach in which all of these disciplines play a role. Hospital services can be combined with hotel and transportation services through an interactive approach.
Medical tourism needs to be more elastic on pricing than in other forms of tourism. It needs to take into account the quality services while benchmarking it against the high costs. The cost may start from the air ticket, visa, and airport pick-up and drop-off to hotels and variety of food suitable to the culture of the accompanying family members during the period of treatment at the accredited hospitals and sightseeing after the treatments. We should see the India’s medical tourism industry forecasted to reach US$9 billion by 2021, while Dubai may capture a share of over US$45 billion by 2018.
Historically, Nepal has been a popular tourist destination and first choice of the international travelers. Now, it needs to scale-up the healthcare industry to accommodate the needs for million tourists. Tourism industry in the past decade has met with setbacks and disappointments due to political instabilities.
Now here, we got the strong and stable government. Nepal can utilize the expertise of various medical institutions to establish the medical tourism centre for medical excellence in areas such as Cardiology, Oncology, Transplantation, Orthopedic, Ophthalmology, Dental and others.
