It’s 8:33 PM. An email has popped up in medical tourism facilitator medECUBE’s inbox. It’s a cry for help from a brother in Cameroon whose sister has been diagnosed with a brain aneurysm. The treatment isn’t available locally. His only affordable option is an Indian hospital. They, however, have not responded for over 48 hours. Enter Indian medical tourism facilitators that can be easily found on Google. About 24 hours later, the woman is getting treated at Max Super Specialty hospital in Saket, Delhi.
This brother is not the traditional medECUBE customer. He is part of a small percentage who seek medical treatment in India.
