Owing to the deficit in the medical infrastructure, the health system is not so matured in Congo. Lack of planning, huge number of healthcare professionals migrating to other countries, poor economic and social conditions, are some of the factors that are contributing to this serious deficit. Thus, patients from Congo 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 Congo could manage to get treated in other countries.
With India emerging as one of the best and leading medical tourism hotspots of the world, just like patients from other countries, patients from Congo also can now afford various treatments and have started flocking to India for all health related issues. Tour2india4health - as the name suggests has always been at the forefront in fulfilling the needs of such patients and has become the most preferred healthcare related service provider for patients from Congo.
There have been many civilizations that rose and fell, some even vanished into oblivion but the spirit of India remains unconquerable. India is one of the oldest civilizations in the world, and proudly homes a kaleidoscopic variety and rich cultural heritage. 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 distinct geographical beauty. India has 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 peaks of the north, the sunny 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.” Mark Twain said these lines decades ago and India indeed fits the description.
Officially known as the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), it is located in Central Africa. The country has a 25-mile coastline on the Atlantic Ocean but otherwise it is landlocked. It is the second largest country on the continent. The capital, Kinshasa, is positioned on the Congo River about 320 miles from its mouth. As the largest city in central Africa, it serves as the country's official administrative, economic, and cultural hub.
Congo is bounded to the north by the Central African Republic and South Sudan; in the east by Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, and Tanzania; southeast by Zambia; and to the southwest by Angola. Further, in the west are the country's short Atlantic coastline, the Angolan exclave of Cabinda, and Congo (Brazzaville). The country's key topographical features include a large river basin, a major valley, high plateaus, three mountain ranges, and a low coastal plain. Majority of the country is composed of the central Congo basin, a vast rolling plain with an average elevation of about 1,700 feet (520 metres) above sea level.
Most of Congo lies within the inner humid tropical, or equatorial, climatic region extending five degrees north and south of the Equator. Southern Congo and the far north have somewhat drier subequatorial climates. Such climatic conditions make the country quite favourable for plant and animal life. Further, Congo is rich in natural resources. It is proud owner of vast deposits of industrial diamonds, cobalt, and copper; one of the largest forest reserves in Africa; and about half of the hydroelectric potential of the continent.
More than 200 languages are spoken in Congo. The communication system between groups has been made easy by four national languages: Swahili, Tshiluba (Kiluba), Lingala, and Kongo. The official language is French, which is the language of instruction, business, administration, and international communications. Also, Congo has proven its skills in the arena of sports.
But despite of all this flourishes, Congo hasn't done too well in the area of healthcare. For the past 20 years, Congo has been going through a major healthcare crisis. The government of Congo has been trying desperately to overcome the deficit of medical resources that are ruining the overall development of the country. People are dying of diseases that are preventable but there is limited access to good quality medical care and amenities and inadequate distribution of resources across the country. Thus, public healthcare in Congo 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 Congo 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. 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 world class medical facilities, at par with any of the western countries, 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, cancer 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 length of hospital stay. Thus, all these advantages prove that India is totally equipped and matured when it comes to being a medical tourism destination; so you can stay assured of getting the best in India.

Garissa Kyenge Congo, Knee Replacement Surgery
Congonese Women Gets To Walk Again with Advanced Knee Replacement Surgery in India
I am Garissa Kyenge and I am from Congo. In recent years I started putting on a lot of weight which started putting excess pressure on my knees. Since my knees had worn out completely the doctors had suggested knee replacement surgery. My husband dint wanted me to undergo any treatment in Congo as it lacks qualitative treatment and thus started searching for the best.
Hello my name is Derrick Hachibe and I am from Zambia. Since few months I have been experiencing excruciating pain in my knee. Initially I thought it was because I was slightly overweight but when I consulted to the doctor, it was found that I was suffering from osteoarthritis. Since my pain and discomfort was not responding to any type of medication or physiotherapy, my orthopaedist recommended a knee replacement surgery for my disease.”
“The Healthcare industry is not very advanced in Zambia and few hospitals which perform advanced surgery at a low cost have long waiting lists. Hence I decided not undergo surgery in Zambia. Upon doing research we came across Joint Replacement Surgery Hospital in India, and found that they provide both advanced as well as affordable surgeries in the best medical centres of India. After verifying the information, we decided to go ahead with them.”
“On reaching India and seeing the hospitality and warmth with which the services were offered we were contended with our decision to come to this country. The Joint Replacement Surgery Hospitals India took care of everything, right from our visa, pick drop facility, hotel reservations and appointment with the best orthopaedic surgeons of India without any waiting lists. In the very next week of our arrival in India, I underwent a knee replacement surgery. I thank everybody involved throughout my treatment in India and give the credit of my well being to them. It was a wonderful experience being here.”
