The Indian government’s Heal in India is a project that aims to encourage medical travel throughout the nation. Therefore, the Ministry of Ayush and the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare are in charge of this project. However, to promote medical value travel, the Ministries have been collaborating with the Center for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC). and the Services Export Promotion Council (SEPC) to create the “One Step” Heal in India webpage.
Later, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed by the Ministry of Ayurveda and the Ministry of Tourism of India to collaborate on the development of medical value travel in Ayurveda and other conventional medical systems.
Therefore, India will be positioned as a world leader in the field of medical tourism and will serve to promote traditional Indian systems of medicine and treatments.
Nonetheless, the Champion Service Sector Program for Medical Value Travel was a central sector scheme created by the Ministry of Ayush. For the purpose of establishing super specialty hospitals and daycare centers for the systems recognized under the National Commission for Indian System of Medicine (NCISM) Act of 2020 or the National Commission for Homeopathy (NCH) Act of 2020 in FY 2021–2022, financial assistance in the form of an interest subsidy is made available to private investors under this program.
Thus, this would aid in the development of the infrastructure necessary for the promotion of medical tourism in India.
To support Heal in India, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has arranged a few Chintan Shivirs. Thus, These Chintan Shivirs had participation from the Ministry of Ayush. In this shivir, specific action points were noted for fostering traditional medicine through travel to India.
“Heal in India” is to promote India as the top location for medical value travel. A round table and a plenary session on Heal in India: Medical Value Travel was held during the World Ayush Investment and Innovation Summit in Gandhinagar, Gujarat.
