WASHINGTON: The influential American association of physicians of Indian origin (AAPI) has identified Pink Jaipur as the center of medical tourism. The association is holding its fourth Indo-US Health Care Summit in the Pink City next week.
To be attended by eminent doctors from India and the US from January 3 to January 5, the fourth edition of this annual event is being held to raise awareness on key healthcare issues affecting the Indian subcontinent such as diabetes, lung diseases, asthma and allergy, cardiovascular disease, women's and children's health and cancer.
The summit will create a prototype programme of implementation for various disease categories specifically designed to improve outcomes while maintaining cost-effectiveness, said AAPI president Dr Ajeet Singhvi.
When successful, the programme can be deployed nationally and internationally, he added.
Jaipur, he said, is the first Indian city which has been accredited by AAPI as centre for medical tourism.
