India at 154 behind Bdesh, Nepal, China on health care index

For instance, China is far ahead of India, ranking at 82 with a score of 74 on the index. Pakistan is below India with 43.1 points. Though India is one of the most preferred destination for Medical Tour/Holiday by the westerners for its affordable treatment, when it comes to its own index, it lags behind its neighbours namely China, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Sri Lanka.

The countries that rank above India have a wide variation in healthcare access and quality. Sri Lanka has scored 73 on the index, whereas Brazil and Bangladesh have score 65 and 52, respectively.
