GOING ABROAD FOR TREATMENT?

Abstract

The idea of travelling great distances for treatment to obtain “cures” and “Aabe Hayat” is not new. There are many reasons, real and imaginary that prompt a patient to undertake ardous and expensive journeys for treatment. We will discount the small minoiity which goes abroad for reasons of prestige or because they are extremely wealthy and except for coming to Pakistan to collect their incomes or oversee their estates have no feelings for this country other than contempt. The majority of people who go abroad do so for two main groups of problems.

Philosophically speaking the grass always appears greener on the other side and the distant drum sounds sweeter. This coupled to the fact that the high and might run abroad for treatment ever time they sneeze makes the public all the more suspicious of local facilities! Remember, people get sick, crippled, remain incurable and die even in the Unites States.
