Health Care System In India

  • Yugal D Dekate,Swayamdeepta Swain
  • 1.The world’s the most populous democratic country  is not able to provide proper healthcare facilities to its entire population.

    2.India is becoming a hub for medical tourism but all these facilities are not available to local residents, who happen to be poor.

    3. Healthcare is a neglected issue in India, as major attention drawers are agriculture, infrastructure and IT.

    4.Lack of resources in rural India is a major concern of the day, leading to most of the problems. 50% of all villagers have no access to healthcare providers; Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) is 34 per 1000 live births; lack of nutrition caused stunned growth in 50% of all the babies; and 36% people in India have no access to toilets.

    5.Poor care quality leads to more deaths than insufficient access to healthcare--1.6 million Indians died due to poor quality of care in 2016, nearly twice as many as due to non-utilisation of healthcare services (838,000 persons)

    6.In India shortage of medical personnel like doctors, a nurse etc. is a basic problem in the health sector. In 1999-2000, while there were only 5.5 doctors per 10,000 population in India, the same is 25 in the USA and 20 in China. Similarly the number of hospitals and dispensaries is insufficient in comparison to our vast population.

    7.In India, health services especially allopathic are quite expensive. It hits hard the common man. Prices of various essential drugs have gone up. Therefore more emphasis should be given to the alternative systems of medicine. Ayurveda, Unani and Homeopathy systems are less costly and will serve the common man in better way.

    8.The growth of health facilities has been highly imbalanced in India. Rural, hilly and remote areas of the country are under served while in urban areas and cities, health facility is well developed. The SC/ST and the poor people are far away from modern health service.

  • After working on these problems mainly poor people and the people who live at very long distance from cities will get benefit and proper facilities.

  • People living in rural areas,small villages and towns,tribal areas are facing these problems regularly.

    Poor people who cannot afford the expensive medical facilities. 

    And sometimes I also face these problems because I belong to a small city and  I need to travel to bigger city to get better medical facilities.
