India is a country where numerous modern hospitals with world class facilities are available. These hospitals are backed by qualified and well trained medical practitioners and supporting teams. Their services are transparent, the cost is unbelievably low and there is no waiting period.

The growth in India’s medical tourism market will be a boon for several associated industries, including hospital industry, medical equipments industry and pharmaceutical industry.

India has a vibrant drug and pharmaceutical manufacturing sectors and an equally flourishing medical equipment manufacturing sector. Other then catering to the domestic needs, Indian pharmaceutical and medical equipments are exported to many countries.

African countries account for 14% of India’s $8- billion pharmaceutical exports. Kenya is the third largest African market for Indian drugs. The volume of trade between India and Uganda has increased, India is now the second largest exporter our exports constitute around 8.5% of Uganda’s total imports. Major exports are: pharmaceuticals and medical equipments. There is ample scope for investment in areas like specialized hospitals, clinical laboratories and diagnostic centres.
