Approximately, what difference in amount in Bahts will it make to a Thai citizen if she were to get a hysterectomy done in India instead of in her native country, taking into account the cost of poor quality? It costs 7500 Bahts for oneway travel between Thailand and India.
Cost of treatment in India in USD ('000) 8 and in Thailand 10.5.
So she pays 2.5 more in Thailand.
Converting in Bahts we get 82500.

So difference is 67500 Bahts.
