SWOT analysis is the best method to provide the basic outline to take strategic decisions. In this study, we have integrated SWOT analysis with multicriteria decision making technique called Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) to rank different strengths, weaknesses. opportunities and challenges of Indian medical tourism in order of prioritization. In AHP approach pairwise comparisons among factors or criteria is performed in order to prioritize them using the group priority scores calculation.
