Healthcare solutions provider Well Med Trip, promoted in Madagascar in 2016 by Kerala and UAE-based Kamal Muhammed, has announced its decision to move its global operations to Mauritius. Mauritian education entrepreneur RN Ghunowa inaugurated the headquarters in Port Louis, the capital of the Indian Ocean island nation, in the presence of company CEO Mohamed.
Banking on Partnerships
A spokesman for Well Med Trip quoted Mohamed as saying the company operates in Mauritius, Madagascar and other Indian Ocean islands, India, the UAE and Africa. “We work with multi-specialty hospitals and clinics in Kerala to provide modern healthcare services along with authentic Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathic, Homeopathy, Siddha and Unani traditions and systems of holistic medicine that will Delivered through colleagues across regions.”
The company has entered into partnerships with Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, Mumbai; Asian Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi; and Sreedhareeyam Ayurvedic Eye Hospital and Dhanwanthari Ayurvedic Hospital in Kerala. “Authentic Ayurvedic treatment is a professional service. With our roots in Kerala and connections with existing centers in India, we plan to offer to build a modern treatment center on an acre of land on the banks of the Meal River.”
The Growing Medical Tourism Industry
Medical tourism is one of the fastest growing sectors. Mohammad said it was crucial for tourist destinations to have modern medical and treatment facilities, complemented by individual wellness programs and traditional remedies. “People from different countries go abroad for treatment and healthcare, avoid long waits back home and get super professional treatment at affordable prices. India is an attractive destination for them,” he added.
At the inaugural event, globally renowned speaker, author and success coach Prem Jagyasi led a master class on medical and wellness tourism. He believes that the development of sustainable medical and health tourism needs to be prioritized through capacity building and global outreach.
