The Indian Medical Value Travel industry was valued at USD 6 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 13 billion by 2026.
Ginger Healthcare, a well-known medical assistance company recognised as one of the top 10 MVT companies in India, catering to the needs of thousands of international patients, is contributing to the growth of the Indian Medical Value Travel industry.
Their website, ghealth121.com, is a popular platform for individuals seeking affordable and top-quality medical treatment in India.
The team of patient advisors at Ginger Healthcare work closely with some of India’s leading private super-speciality hospitals, including Apollo Hospitals, Fortis Hospitals, Medanta- The Medicity, and Max Healthcare, among others, to provide patients with free medical opinion for treatment in India.
This ensures that patients are able to make informed decisions regarding their medical treatment. Also, their service assistance team provides guidance and support to patients throughout their stay in India, from their arrival until their departure.
Located in New Delhi, India, Ginger Healthcare has been providing exceptional services to its clients since August 2018.

Abdul Alim Barbhuiya, a business management graduate from Indiana State University USA and a PLUS Fulbright Scholar, and Dr Arif Khan, a pediatric cardiologist with extensive experience working in India’s top super-speciality hospitals such as Apollo Hospital, Naryana, Fortis Memorial Research Institute, and Max Hospitals, launched Ginger Healthcare in August 2018.
Together, they bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the organisation, ensuring that patients receive the highest quality care possible.
For Abdul, the inspiration to enter the healthcare industry came from personal experience when his relative from the USA needed medical treatment in India.
They found that it was challenging to choose a hospital and undergo treatment without proper guidance and assistance.
This experience led Abdul to realise the need for a reliable organisation that could provide guidance and support to international patients seeking medical treatment in India, leading to the inception of Ginger Healthcare.
Finding reliable guidance and care is essential for international medical travellers who come to India for medical treatment from distant countries such as Kenya, Ethiopia, Iraq, Uzbekistan, etc.
Patients require a trustworthy organisation in India to take care of their well-being during critical medical treatment. However, there are few such organisations available.
Ginger Healthcare aims to fill that gap by becoming the most reliable organisation for international medical travellers in India.
To ensure a smooth and hassle-free treatment experience for international medical travellers in India, Ginger Healthcare offers a range of valuable services, including:
FREE opinions and estimates from India’s finest medical doctors.
Issuing FREE VISA Invitation Letters for international patients.
Assisting patients with their VISA applications at no additional cost.
REE Airport pick-up and drop-off services for international patients.
FREE Language Interpreters for Arabic, Bengali, Russian, and Uzbek.
FREE Local Guidance and complete support during treatment in India.
Effectively communicating with people from different languages and cultural backgrounds has always been a challenge for the team at Ginger Healthcare; however, it also presented an exciting opportunity to make friends across the globe.
The pandemic had a significant impact on the medical tourism industry, as the closure of international flights brought many businesses to a halt. Businesses with diversified models took a big hit, while those working on lean financial models survived and thrived.
The pandemic forced businesses to embrace digital technology and B2C marketing strategies. Nevertheless, Ginger Healthcare utilised this time to upgrade their website and complete other pending tasks while also learning the importance of saving for adversity during times of prosperity.
The commitment to offering completely free guidance and assistance to patients on behalf of the hospitals has earned Ginger Healthcare several recognitions, including,
10 Best Healthcare Startups in NCR by SiliconIndia Magazine - 2019
10 Most Innovative Healthcare Brands in India- India Ambitious Brands Award, 2021
MVT Excellence Award for finest health brands- MVTWatch Forum, 2022
Focused currently on building a team that can deliver seamless care and support to patients, Ginger Healthcare aims to be a major player in India.
They also have plans to expand into new markets such as Turkey, UAE, Egypt, Bangkok, and the US. Ginger Healthcare plans to leverage AI technology to enable remote medical access and introduce OPD services in foreign countries.
