We not only make high quality medical care affordable but also create awareness on various health issues
Apart from providing medical travel assistance, we also do our best to spread health awareness. Being in the filed of healthcare, we cannot just focus on assisting patients to get quality medical treatment but we also need to focus on overall well being of people.
Over the years we have found that many people do not have information on healthy living, health conditions, medical treatments, hospitals, doctors etc. In some of the developing and underdeveloped countries it has is a very serious problem. People do not how to prevent diseases and when they fall ill they do not know where to go and what kind of a treatment is required. In our day to day work of providing medical travel assistance , we also do our bit to spread health awareness using different channels. Right from posting health tips and providing information on various health issues on our social media network and blog to organising health camps at various places around the world we do whatever we can do with the available resources.
We all know that prevention is always better than cure . As mentioned above, at Treatment Assistance, we also create awareness . We organise free medical camps, health seminars, CME programs and distribute information booklets or brochures. These kind of events also help to share knowledge and train local people . We have successfully organised many free medical camps , health seminars and CME for medical staff across many countries in Africa. Moreover it has given an opportunity for those thousands of patients to see and consult some of the top doctors of India without traveling all the way to India for just doing that. By organising such camps we have also found that not all patients are required to travel to foreign countries for medical treatment. Some patients have very minor problems which can be treated locally and in some patients there are no treatments available or it is too late for any treatment. Our medical camps have also helped patients to save money and avoid unnecessary medical travel.
One of the very important reasons for people traveling for medical treatment is the cost . We do our best to get lowest possible cost for them for their medical treatment in India. We keep on developing and negotiating special packages for various medical treatments with different hospitals in India. The idea is to get the lowest possible cost so that we can offer that to you. Further we do not deal with any or all the hospitals across India because apart from getting the lowest cost, we also need to see the medical expertise and quality of care that are offered by the hospitals.
Further we also work with NGOs and other voluntary organisations to develop special packages for their beneficiaries.
