Owing to the deficit in the medical infrastructure, the health system is not so matured in Afghanistan. There is serious shortage of basic and emergency medical care services due to insecurity, distance, poor economic and social conditions, cost and the fact that many healthcare centers do not function adequately. Thus, patients from Afghanistan prefer to travel to other countries to get rescued from their health issues. This has been the case in the past years as well, when only the affluent population of Afghanistan could manage to get timely treatment in other countries.
With India emerging as one of the best and leading medical tourism hubs of the world, not only patients from other countries, but patients from Afghanistan also can now afford various treatments and have started flocking to India. Tour2india4health - as the name suggests has always been at the ahead in fulfilling the needs of such patients and has become the most preferred healthcare related service provider for patients from Afghanistan along with other countries. Some of the major features that place us in a better position are:
India is one of the oldest civilizations in the world, and proudly homes a kaleidoscopic variety and rich cultural heritage. There have been many civilizations that rose and fell, some even vanished into oblivion but the spirit of India remains unconquerable. It has achieved all-round socio-economic progress over the years. India is the 7th largest country in the world and stands apart from the remaining Asia, surrounded by mountains and the sea, which give the country a distinctive geographical beauty. India boasts of a different aspect of its beauty and personality to proffer to each of the travellers visiting the country.
Located in South Asia, bordered by Pakistan, Nepal, China and Bangladesh, India is South Asia's largest, sovereign, democratic republic. Teeming with a billion plus people, India will astound you with its diversity; be it the snow-wrapped and serene peaks of the north, the sunny and peaceful beaches down south, to dense forests, gorgeous temples, and vibrant festivals to cities that have developed to become the IT hubs of the country. Referred to as the largest democracy in the world, it is one of the fastest growing economies. Further, owing to its powerful diversity, India makes an interesting tourist destination coupled with mouth watering cuisine that would certainly make people come back for more.
Spiritually, India respects all belief systems and is a secular country where many religions were born and are living and flourishing together. As Mark Twain rightly described India in the following lines, "India is, the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only."
Officially known as the Islamic Republic of the Afghanistan, it is a landlocked country located within South Asia and Central Asia. It is the 42nd most populous country in the world, with a population of about 35 million. Afghanistan is bordered by Pakistan in the south and east; Iran in the west; Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan in the north; and China in the far northeast. Its territory covers 652,000 square kms. (252,000 sq.mts), making it the 41st largest country in the world.
The country's highest point is Noshaq, at 7,492 m (24,580 ft) above sea level. It has a continental climate with harsh winters in the central highlands, the glaciated northeast (around Nuristan), and the Wakhan Corridor, where the average temperature in January is below −15 °C (5 °F), and hot summers in the low-lying areas of the Sistan Basin of the southwest, the Jalalabad basin in the east, and the Turkestan plains along the Amu River in the north, where temperatures average over 35 °C (95 °F) in July.
Over 99 percent of the Afghan population is Muslim. It is a unitary presidential Islamic republic with Islam as the official state religion. It is a member of the United Nations, the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, the Group of 77, the Economic Cooperation Organization, and the Non-Aligned Movement. Afghanistan is mostly a tribal society with different regions of the country having its own subculture. Pashto and Dari are the official languages of Afghanistan but bilingualism is also very common. There are a number of smaller regional languages, which include Uzbeki, Turkmeni, Balochi, Pashayi, and Nuristani. Many Afghans are also fluent in Urdu, English, and other foreign languages.
Agriculture is the backbone of Afghanistan's economy. The country is famous for producing some of the finest pomegranates, grapes, apricots, melons, and several other fresh and dry fruits. It is also known as the world's largest producer of opium. Also, the country's natural resources include: coal, copper, iron ore, lithium, uranium, rare earth elements, chromite, gold, zinc, talc, barites, sulfur, lead, marble, precious and semi-precious stones, natural gas, and petroleum, among other things. Additionally, in recent times, Afghanistan's sports teams are increasingly celebrating titles at international events.
But despite of all this riches, Afghanistan isn't doing too well in the area of healthcare. According to Human Development Index, Afghanistan is the 15th least developed country in the world. Almost 60 percent of the population has to walk a minimum of two hours to reach a health centre. The government of Afghanistan has been trying desperately to overcome this health crisis and the deficit of medical resources because these factors are ruining the overall development of the country. People are dying of diseases that are preventable due to limited access to good quality medical care and amenities and inadequate distribution of resources across the country. Thus, public healthcare in Afghanistan is generally of low quality due to widespread corruption, rampant poverty and limited resources.
Credit goes to the fast-paced ascend of the medical tourism industry; a large number of patients from Afghanistan are finalizing India as their treatment destination. The main attractive facet that is drawing the attention of these patients is the availability of reasonably priced treatments. This is helping these patients in saving a lot of money compared to what they have to shell out in their own country. Majority of the treatments in India cost about as low as one tenth of what they cost in other leading nations like USA or UK.
Today India has truly emerged as a very promising option as the ultimate medical tourism destination. Imagine a complex medical procedure being done by the most adept surgeons and at prices as low as one-tenth of what it costs in other leading nations. That's India! India has some of the best qualified professionals in each and every medical sphere, and this fact has now been identified and widely accepted by people around the globe. Right from quality of services, array of procedures and treatment options, availability of top-notch infrastructure and skilled manpower to perform any medical procedure, to zero waiting time - the list of advantages goes on.

Hajira Karzai Afghanistan, Uterine Cancer
Hajira Karzai of Afghanistan undergoes successful Hysterectomy Surgery for Uterine Cancer
It was a shock to me when I got to know that the painful symptoms experienced by me were due to uterine cancer. The doctors had recommended me to undergo hysterectomy surgery for it but my family was hesitant for me to receive treatment there, as Afghanistan still doesn’t have hospitals that can perform advanced surgical procedures. Thus they started searching for a country that could provide both qualitative as well as affordable treatment. It was during the same research that they come across the website of Tour2India4Health. Their healthcare packages were very much ideal and they had tie ups with the best cancer institutes of India. Thus we decided to proceed with them for my treatment.
Upon reaching India we were received with great hospitality and the team had already scheduled my appointment with one of the leading oncologist of India. In the following week of my arrival, I underwent Hysterectomy with the team of best surgeons. My family was happy as I was relieved from the deadly disease and had a chance for life again.
After my treatment, I can definitely say that Tour2India4Health is the best destination for every person looking for his/her treatment because along with providing best in class treatment, they assist you with everything related to it. May it be your Visa, pick and drop facility, accommodation or anything in between; they took care of everything that too at an affordable cost.
