The healthcare system is developed and a devolved sector. It is in general matured in New Zealand. But still there are factors that are affecting the overall healthcare system. There is shortage of paramedics particularly in the accidents and emergency medical care services department. Also, the waiting time and treatment charges are very gruelling. Thus, patients from New Zealand prefer to travel to other countries to get rescued from their health issues. This has been the case in the past as well, when only the affluent people of New Zealand could manage to get timely treatment in other countries.
But today India has emerged as one of the best and leading medical tourism hubs of the world. Thus, now not only patients from other countries, but patients from New Zealand 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:
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."
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.
New Zealand is called the 'land of long white cloud'. It is undeniably one of the most picturesque places on this planet. A small island nation of population just over 4.5 million people, New Zealand is made up of two major land masses (North Island and South Island) and a number of smaller islands including Stewart Island located in the south-western Pacific Ocean. The two main islands are divided by a 22km stretch of water referred to as the Cook Strait. Due to its relative remoteness and being water locked, New Zealand is said to be one of the last countries to be found and settled. The country has some of the world's most spectacular landscapes, ranging from vast mountain ranges, steaming volcanoes to sweeping coastlines. It naturally attracts numerous thrill seekers and adventurers and those who simply want to visit for the culture and to enjoy its beauty. The country's varied topography and its sharp mountain peaks, such as the Southern Alps, are owing to the tectonic uplift of land and volcanic eruptions.
The climate is quite complex and varies between the North and South Islands. While the land masses of the North Island and South Island are similar, approximately two thirds of the population lives in the North Island and the remainder in the South Island. The majority of New Zealand's population is of European decent while Auckland, the largest city in New Zealand, is the most ethnically diverse in the country and has the largest Polynesian population than any city in the world. New Zealanders are affectionately called as 'Kiwis'. The name derives from kiwi, a flightless bird from New Zealand, which is also the national symbol. Kiwis are characterised as rugged, industrious problem solvers and people who are very innovative. Kiwis are great travellers themselves with many exploring and making an impact on the world in the arenas like sports, business, politics, etc.
Further, there is a very unique range of flora and fauna in New Zealand. The native animal, bird and plant species are some of the most beautiful ones in the world. There are many national parks, native forests, walking tracks and maritime reserves to be enjoyed. In addition to these, there are large number of glaciers, lakes, mountains, beaches and thermal reserves, much to the delight of the tourists. For a small nation, New Zealand has dominated the sports field in many areas. The major sporting code is Rugby Union (more commonly known as Rugby). Others include netball, cricket, soccer and rugby league.
New Zealand has also achieved highly in track and field, rowing, yachting and cycling. Mountaineering is also there with Sir Edmund Hillary conquering Mt Everest in 1953 English is the predominant language in New Zealand, spoken by 96.1 percent of the population. New Zealand English is similar to Australian English and many speakers from the Northern Hemisphere are unable to tell the accents apart. Christianity is the predominant religion in New Zealand, although its society is among the most secular ones in the world.
The healthcare sector is a developed one in New Zealand but surely not without problems. There is shortage of healthcare services in specific areas. The span of life is very good in this country but the services are not sufficient that cater to old age health issues. Dealing 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 New Zealand opt for getting treated in other countries rather than in New Zealand.
With the medical tourism industry gaining fast-paced popularity, a large number of patients from New Zealand 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 New Zealand.
Today, India has truly 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.

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.
