Public health experts, health economists, agents of foreign specialised hospitals and patients say Bangladeshis seeking treatment abroad is on an upward trend since patients are unwilling to gamble with their life and health.

Hot on the heels of a record breaking 2017 where funding exceeded US$2.6 billion across a total of 230 deals executed, Asia HealthTech funding shows no signs of slowing down as we close the first quarter of investment activity for 2018.

Vietnam’s HealthTech Renaissance

Last year, in a February 2017 post for the Galen Growth Asia blog, I described Vietnam as a “greenfield” for HealthTech innovation.
