Increasing Investments by Governments to Push Market Growth

In the west, the cost of medical expenses is extremely high. If some surgeries are not covered by the insurance, patients generally prefer to deter away from the procedure. This practice is not recommended as it puts the health of the patient at risk. Thus, to solve such problems patients generally travel to other cost-efficient countries in regions such as South Asia. Recently, economic growth and developments in the countries in the Asia Pacific region is one of the key reasons behind the modernization of the healthcare services. Moreover, such initiatives are backed by the governments by providing funds and investments. This too is expected to help in the development of the global medical tourism market.
