Bibliotekernes beskrivelse
In India, health is not a part of the development story. It is one of the dozen countries that spend as little as one per cent of its GDP on health, pushing the burden on the people to pay for their own health out of their savings or by borrowing at high interest rates. As a consequence, nearly sixty million people get pushed below the poverty line every year. The government's efforts to provide financial security through insurance schemes have not benefitted the poorest due to lack of access to hospitals and doctors. With more than half the people suffering the 'clustered disadvantage' of poverty and no access to tap water, sanitation, environmental hygiene, nutrition, and decent housing, India is home to a substantial burden of communicable diseases that are easily treatable at incredibly low cost. Despite these constraints, India has eradicated polio, reversed the incidence of HIV/AIDS by 57 per cent, and demonstrated rapid declines in maternal, infant, and child mortality under the National Rural Health Mission, NRHM. There is hope for India to reverse the situation by taking some bold measures towards providing comprehensive primary care on the principle of universalism.This requires increased budgets, greater use of technology, making people partners in the process, and above all providing leadership and good governance.
