Gujarat develops strategies and support system for Medical Tourism.

The Honorable Health Minister of Gujarat Mr Jaynarayan Vyas along with senior dignitaries expressed great interest in making Gujarat as a leading Medical Tourism Destination by developing comprehensive support system. Among the key speaker was invited guest, Honorable Health minister of punjab Mr Sud, who appreciated work of Gujarat.

It was my pleasure to participate in panel discussion with honorable health minister, where I got opportunity to discuss about growing trends of medical tourism and how individual states can develop strategies.

Gujarat healthcare system has many feathers in his cap, its the first state govt in india to launch e-mamta program for pregnant women and infants. A techy system in which they record activities of pregnant women and update them with SMS about important prenatal and postnatal care.

Rural healthcare program is another great initiative, where they are empowering rural population by providing sufficient infrastructure for health, education, water & electricity. Mr Vyas made very clear remarks on supporting rural development. Gujarat has pledge to develop more medical colleges, as they are going witness tremendous growth in Healthcare.

The ‘foster healthcare for all’ is run event for upcoming Vibrant Gujarat event which will take place in Jan 2011.
