The foremost in the agenda is to bring down the cost of healthcare in India, Union Minister for Overseas Affairs Vayalar Ravi has said.
Health tourism is gaining momentum in developing countries. It is the provision of cost-effective private medical care in collaboration with the tourism industry for patients needing surgical and other forms of specialized treatment, he said in his valedictory address at the international conference on Health Tourism 2013 organised by KSIDC and CII here.
