Cancer is one the most critical diseases and the second leading cause of death worldwide. The lack of appropriate facilities and high treatment costs in many countries are the main reasons many people suffer and die even after a cancer diagnosis. Affordable cancer treatment cost in India is one reason why foreigners prefer to visit there for their treatment.
The situation is even more critical for African countries, particularly Nigeria. If we look at the stats, an estimated 72,000 cancer deaths occur annually – 10 Nigerians are recorded dying of cancer every hour. It is an alarmingly high level. Consequently, Nigerians spend about $260 million on medical expenses in India – cancer diagnosis is among the major ones.
