Environmental Impact of Medical Tourism

An increasing range of studies reveal that tourism industry makes a considerable contribution towards socioeconomic growth and development of tourism led economies. However, tourism steered economic growth and development is achieved at the price of environmental pollution and degradation.For infrastructural growth, the natural greenery or forest cover of an area is compromised in order to accommodate additional buildings, hospital facilities, roads, treatment or diagnostic centers etc. To supplement the above, there's a nonstop discharge of polluted air, solid -toxic medical waste, litters of sewage consisting of oil and chemicals. Health tourism conjointly creates a scarcity of native resources like power, food stock, fuel and alternative unredeemable natural resources, that may already be in short supply within the host country.
