Indian Big Pharma Gets A Check Up

20.01.2017 • Emerging Markets

Ankit Shah – Vivek Kaul’s Inner Circle (India) –

My uncle suffered a brain stroke
about three weeks ago. He was rushed to a reputed private hospital near my
home. The medical intervention, which seems to

be standard practice, resulted in an
adverse reaction… and he is now in a vegetative state. After 18 days in the ICU
and a hefty medical bill, the doctor has suggested
 we take him home…and pray for a
miracle.
  I have been visiting the
hospital almost every day… seeing illness…anxiety…grief…and immense
financial drain. People who saved years and years of hard-earned money are
compelled to blow it up on the ultra-expensive healthcare costs in private
hospitals. I am sharing this anecdote from my personal life not to vent out my
frustration about the sky-high healthcare 
costs…but to emphasize the
importance of building enough savings for medical emergencies. And one way to
do that is to be a part-owner in this eternally profitable industry.
 

In today’s Inner Circle issue, I’m
going to take you through a quick health check-up of the healthcare industry.
