The healthcare sector is in general matured in Australia. But still there are factors that are affecting the overall improvement of the healthcare system. There is shortage of healthcare personnel in many departments and uneven distribution of medical resources. Also, the waiting time is high and treatment charges are very gruelling. Thus, patients from Australia prefer to travel to other countries to get rescued from their health issues. There were times when only the affluent population of Australia could manage to get timely treatment in other countries.
But today India has emerged as the hope for people from every socio-economic section of society. One of the best and leading medical tourism hubs of the world, India is efficiently catering to patients around the globe. Thus, now not only patients from other countries, but patients from Australia also can avail the various affordable treatments and have been visiting India to get treated. Tour2india4health – as the name suggests has always been ahead in fulfilling the needs of such patients and has become the most sought after healthcare service provider. Some of the major features that place us in a better position are:
French Philosopher, Romain Rollan has rightly said, "If there is one place on the face of this Earth where all the dreams of living men have found a home from the very earliest days when Man began the dream of existence, it is India.”
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. 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.
Bordered by Pakistan, Nepal, China and Bangladesh, India is South Asia's largest, sovereign, democratic republic, located in South Asia. 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, which have grown to become the IT hubs of the country. It is full of wonderful historical places, heritage sites, and delightful tourism places in various Indian cities, which make India famous for travel and tourism all over the world. 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.
Australia, officially the Commonwealth of Australia, is a sovereign country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania and many smaller islands. It is an island continent, the largest country in Oceania and the world's sixth-largest country by total area. Lying between the Indian and Pacific oceans, the country is approximately 4,000 km from east to west and 3,200 km from north to south, with a coastline as long as 36,735 km. The neighbouring countries are Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and East Timor to the north; the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu to the north-east; and New Zealand to the south-east. Australia's capital is Canberra, and its largest urban area is Sydney. Canberra is roughly half way between the two largest cities Melbourne and Sydney. Further, Australia has 19 listed World Heritage properties. Australia is also famous for its landmark buildings including the Sydney Harbour Bridge; its ancient geology, as well as for its high country.
Australia is a unique and diverse country in every way - culture, population, climate, geography, and history. Australian culture is as broad and varied like the country's landscape; it is multicultural and multiracial and this is reflected in the country's food, lifestyle and cultural practices. Australia has an important heritage from its indigenous people, which plays a defining role in the cultural landscape making it lively, energized and innovative. Australia has the world's 13th-largest economy and ninth-highest per capita income (International Monetary Fund). With the second-highest human development index globally, the country ranks highly in quality of life, health, education, economic freedom, and civil liberties and political rights. Additionally, Australia is a powerhouse when it comes to sports. The most popular sports activities include Soccer, Rugby, water-based sports like swimming and surfing, Horse racing, basketball, motor racing and more.
The majority of Australia experiences temperate weather for most of the year. The northern states of Australia are typically warm all the time, with the southern states experiencing cool winters but rarely sub-zero temperatures. Snow falls on the higher mountains during the winter months, enable skiing in southern New South Wales and Victorian ski resorts, as well as the smaller resorts in Australia's island state, Tasmania. Because of the continent's great age, extremely variable weather patterns, and long-term geographical isolation, much of Australia's flora and fauna is unique. About 85 percent of flowering plants, 84 percent of mammals, more than 45 percent of birds, and 89% percent of in-shore, temperate-zone fish are endemic. Also, Australia has the greatest number of reptiles than any country, with 755 species.
The Great Barrier Reef, the world's largest coral reef, lies close to the north-east coast and extends for over 2,000 kilometres (1,240 mi). Mount Augustus, claimed to be the world's largest monolith is located in Western Australia. At 2,228 metres (7,310 ft), Mount Kosciuszko on the Great Dividing Range is the highest mountain on the Australian mainland. Even taller are Mawson Peak (at 2,745 metres or 9,006 feet), on the remote Australian territory of Heard Island, and, in the Australian Antarctic Territory, Mount McClintock and Mount Menzies, at 3,492 metres (11,457 ft) and 3,355 metres (11,007 ft) respectively.
When it comes to healthcare, Australia has the third and seventh highest life expectancy of males and females respectively in the world. Life expectancy in Australia is around 79.5 years for males and 84.0 years for females. The healthcare sector is a developed one in Australia but surely not without problems. There is shortage of healthcare services in specific areas along with underfunding. Both public sector and private sector have their own issues and thus Canadians either have to deal with lengthy waiting periods or opt for other countries to get treated. Dealing with shortage of paramedic staff, long waiting periods, and most importantly the skyrocketing treatment costs, is very challenging here. The distribution of healthcare facilities is not proportionate as per social and economic classes. Also, the variation in quality and quantity of treatment and expenditure is not that good when compared to other countries. This makes many people from Australia opt for getting treated in other countries rather than in Australia.
With the medical tourism industry gaining fast-paced popularity, a large number of patients from Australia 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 and that too with zero waiting periods. This is majorly 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 Australia. Also, what is most crucial is that these medical tourists from Australia are getting treated on time.
Today, India has truly and successfully proved herself as a very promising option as a 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, range of surgeries and treatment options, availability of cutting edge infrastructure and skilled manpower to perform any medical procedure, to zero waiting time – the list of advantages goes on. Some of the factors that are drawing the attention of medical tourists are:
As a medical tourism destination, India maintains not only a strong accreditation system, but also a large number of accredited facilities. So if you or your loved ones have been suggested a complex procedure or any other treatment, India would obviously be the best decision. India offers top notch medical facilities, at par with any of the leading nations, competitive prices for treatments along with patient friendly ambience, making India a very lucrative destination.
All leading and recognized hospitals have invested a lot in technology and operative techniques as newer and newer technologies are being adopted on a regular basis here. Thus, complicated heart surgeries, oncology and related cure and surgeries, neurosurgeries and even general surgeries are handled by using high-end technology for safe and better outcomes, to minimize complications, enable faster recovery and reduce the duration of hospital stay. Thus, all these advantages prove that India is totally equipped and matured when it comes to being a medical tourism destination. Thus, you can stay assured of getting the best in India.

The concept of Health Tours is a new and upcoming trend. This is one key area where Tour2india4health Consultants has been recognized and appreciated widely in Australia. A Health Tour would typically comprise of a full body comprehensive health check up and travelling to some of the popular tourist attractions.
Full body checkups would be followed by detailed evaluation of the reports and also counselling of the patient based on the reports. After this, full day spas are organized, after which is the tour around the city for about 2-3 days, to all the major tourist spots. Such Health Tours are extremely beneficial and much needed for the patients to rejuvenate them and to keep them away from anxiety and worries concerning their health.

The process of coming to India for successful and economically priced medical treatment is not at all that complicated. The process begins with the patient sending his/her query and medical history through email or by discussing the medical condition over a phone call with a healthcare manager/consultant. The reports and the case are then meticulously studied by our senior surgeons/physicians for a detailed medical opinion, which is then conveyed to the patient so that the patient can understand and plan the next steps accordingly. As a mandatory step, all reports are studied and reviewed by not less than three experts for unbiased comprehensive medical opinions. After this, the patient can come to India on pre-decided dates. Additionally, we assist our patients from Australia in getting medical visa approval plus we also arrange all logistic and travel related requirements. More details can be read at the Step-by-Step Guide for better understanding of the process.

Evie Brown Australia, Breast Cancer
Young Evie from Australia overcomes Breast Cancer with Myomectomy Surgery in India.
“Hello my name is Evie Brown and I am from Australia. Early this year I was diagnosed with breast cancer and travelled to India for my treatment because the hospitals in Australia providing advanced treatment offer the same at high prices. My father had taken the assistance of Tour2India4Health, which is a medical tourism firm in India as they ensured my treatment with the best oncologist in India, at an affordable cost.
Undergoing cancer treatment was very daunting for me and I was not ready to travel abroad for the same. However when I experienced the service of the staff of tour2India4Health, I understood why my father took this decision for me. This firm charged even less than half the price of treatment in Australia despite the fact that my surgery here included hotel, conveyance and flight expenses.
I am extremely thankful to the team of Tour2India4Health for conducting my mastectomy surgery in the best cancer hospital of India which had all the advanced amenities and best staff. Being diagnosed with cancer was the toughest thing to accept but by offering the treatment with so much compassion, you made my journey easy. You guys are the best!
