India, though still listed in the “Developing” country, with poverty as its property, as shown in the movie slum dog Millionaire, it achieved a lot in the field of medical treatments. It is true that still some villages don’t have basic medical facilities, and people are unaware of the available treatments and even common medical treatments. But, still when compared to the treatments all over the world, India is one among the countries with world class treatments, but still very cheap compared to any other countries.
If a person needs to do a heart surgery in a western country like USA, it will cost at least $30,000 to $50,000 minimum. But in India, for my dad, who got a heart surgery done few years before, it was just around $4000, including all expenses.
