  • OUR MISSION FOR MEDICAL TOURS
    Medical tourism can be broadly defined as provision of cost effective private medical care in collaboration with the tourism industry for patients needing surgical and other forms of specialized treatment. This process is being facilitated by the corporate sector involved in medical care as well as the tourism industry - both private and public.
    Our mission is to transform humanity by empowering doctors and nurses to reach out majority patients and organizing workshops where both urban and rural doctor can meet and interact. We intend to make cheap but profession and helpful package that will be friendly to medical student who need to travel to various places with Uganda.
    It will be made easier for both local and international Medical students, medical lecturers, Samaritans interested in supporting Elderly, poor and orphans. This will help doctors all over the world to reach their full potential through a holistic system of six programs that focus on health care, education

      Struggling Healthcare Worldwide
      Current healthcare systems worldwide suffer from severe crises.
      The Healthcare crises are driven by several different factors in each country.

      What's the Future?
      Will it continue? How long?

    • It is likely that Global Healthcare crises will continue for many more years despite attempts by international health organizations and national health authorities.
      Key Reasons are:
      • Challenges of a Changing World
      Unequal Economy. Unequal Outcomes.
      Shift in diseases, increase of non-communicable and chronic disorders
      • Little anticipation and slow response by authorities
      • Baby Boomers and Ageing Population
      • Increase in Healthcare Cost
      Increase in Pharmaceutical Cost
      Increase because of Medical Equipment Cost
      Increase because of Documentation and Accreditation Cost
      • Fragmented Healthcare System worldwide
      • Commercialization of Healthcare
    • Little Anticipation and Slow Reactions by Authorities
      • Over the past few decades, health authorities have shown little evidence of their ability to anticipate such changes, prepare for them or even adapt to them when they have become an everyday reality.
      • This is worrying because the rate of change is accelerating. Globalization, urbanization and ageing will be compounded by the health effects of other global phenomena, such as climate change, the impact of which is expected to be greatest among the most vulnerable communities living in the poorest countries.
      Source: WHO
    • Baby Boomers (US Study)
      Reference: ~ A joint report from First Consulting Group and the American Hospital Association, titled “When I'm 64: How Boomers Will Change Health Care.”
      • The pharmaceutical industry weighs even more heavily in the global economy, with global pharmaceutical sales expected to expand to US$ 735–745 billion in 2008, with a growth rate of 6–7%93.
      • The United States is the world’s largest market, accounting for around 48% of the world total: per capita expenditure on drugs was US$ 1141 in 2005, twice the level of Canada, Germany or the United Kingdom, and 10 times that of Mexico.
      High Pharmaceutical Cost
      Source: WHO
    • Fragmentation: health systems built around priority programmes
      • While urban health by and large revolves around hospitals, the rural poor are increasingly confronted with the progressive fragmentation of their health services, as “selective” or “vertical” approaches focus on individual disease control programmes and projects.
      Fragmented HealthCare System
      Source: WHO
    • Health systems left to drift towards unregulated commercialization
      In many, if not most, low- and middle-income countries, under-resourcing and fragmentation of health services has accelerated the development of commercialized health care.
      Commercialization of HealthCare
      Source: WHO
    • Fifty-seven countries face a severe health workforce crisis.
      WHO estimates that at least 2,360,000 health service providers and 1,890,000 management support workers, or a total of 4,250,000 health workers, are needed to fill the gap.
      Without prompt action, the shortage will worsen.
      The Global Shortage of Healthcare Workers
    • Healthcare is a concern
      Percentage of the population citing health as their main concern before other issues, such as financial problems, housing or crime.
      Source: WHO
    • With continued growth of Global Healthcare Crises, patients will struggle to get:
      • Affordable Healthcare
      • Easy Accessible Healthcare
      • Availability of Healthcare
      • Quality Healthcare Services
      Global Healthcare Crises and Concerns
    • Medical Tourism Drivers & Factors
      Global Establishment of Quality Standards
      Increased Global Access, Affordable Transport
      Increased Demand for Cosmetic and Dental Procedures
      Increased Demand for Medical & Surgical Procedures
      Acceptance by Employers & Health Plans
      Globalization of Workforces

      US Employers, Insurers & Medical Tourism
      • Several insurance companies have implemented medical tourism or “pilot” programs in medical tourism such as Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, WellPoint, Swiss Re and others.
      • Several self funded employers have implemented medical tourism such as Hannaford Brothers and others.
      • Many employers are offering medical tourism because the cost savings is up to 90% of the cost in the U.S. while the quality can be equal to or in some cases better than the patients would receive in their home countries.
