Rising global health awareness with people seeking better and convenient avenues of healthcare and wellness has led to the creation of niche wellness and medical tourism sectors, two flourishing domains in the global tourism industry.  Wellness and medical tourism are most sought after ventures by the health conscious, who are keen on exploring various healthcare options within their means to enhance their quality of life.


Though many people are aware of these niche tourism sectors, they lack authentic information. The recently published comprehensive guidebooks have done a commendable job by addressing the basic issues of medical tourism and wellness tourism to provide valuable information regarding planning and implementation. 

The author, an award winning leader, speaker and global influencer – Dr Prem Jagyasi recently met with The Minister of State for Culture (IC), Tourism (IC) and Civil Aviation of India, Dr Mahesh Sharma, where he presented him with newly launched Medical Tourism and Wellness Tourism guidebooks.

Dr Prem said, “A medical tourism research conducted by us revealed that 59% of industry experts believed that accessing reliable information is a major challenge for the industry. Since many are still unaware of the immense benefits of wellness tourism and medical tourism, and the associated challenges, the objective of these guides is to educate the reader about other effective avenues of wellness and treatment through cross-border exploration.”

Cross-border travel seeking better medical support is not a risky affair, but if done without proper planning and reliable information can invite life-threatening situations. Reliability and authenticity of information is a big issue that shapes the success of a medical and wellness tourism venture.

Reinforcing his commitment towards addressing the huge knowledge deficit and with a view to empower the health care seeker with a credible insight in wellness and medical tourism, Dr Prem has deftly framed these guidebooks enriched with informative writing supported by interesting facts and anecdotes.

In spite of this, accessing authentic information regarding these treatments and their effectiveness remains a big challenge”.
