There is no doubt that medical expenses are through the roof. When it comes to getting patients the care they so urgently need, many are faced with bills that total several thousands of dollars. This is unaffordable for most people. That’s why medical tourism is becoming such a popular option.
Medical tourism involves going to another country to get the medical services you need. Eastern countries like India and others, charge as little as one tenth of the prices charged in Western countries like the U.S. and U.K. Even with air travel, many patients save a good chunk of change.
But difficulty arises in finding the right doctors and hospitals and in making accommodations. Without being familiar with the care provided in other countries, it can be hard to decide where to turn. This can be even more stressful when you’re dealing with an illness.
That’s where Svast comes in.
Svast is the brainchild of co-founders Kunnummal Biju and Lata Hariharan. They were aware of the difficulties patients face when trying to make arrangements for overseas care. They do everything from providing patients with care options to making travel arrangements to making sure translation and special food arrangements are being taken care of.

How Has Svast Helped?
Svast has helped many patients get the affordable care they need.
In the past, they helped an Iraqi mother of three whose husband was dealing with cancer. She was not confident that Iraqi doctors could treat his condition and she was worried about leaving her children behind when traveling with her husband for treatment.
Svast helped the family through it by arranging airport travel, hospital visits, accommodations, translators, and special dietary arrangements. They even made sure the couple was able to take their children along.
The coronavirus presented an array of problems when it came to patients getting the care they need. But Svast didn’t let it get in the way of getting their clients treated.
Months into the lockdown, they received a batch of patients from Tashkent, Uzbekistan with serious illnesses. They transported them safely into Delhi providing them with the accommodations and care they required during this difficult time.
