India as the second most populous country of the world where more than 60% of its population rely on Agriculture and allied occupations, healthcare has remained the matter of concern. With a weak primary health sector, lack of skilled medical professionals, inadequacy of regulation for private hospitals, low public spending on health, fragmented health information system, rising cost of medical treatment in India, medical research in India having very little application and weak governance and accountability of the sector are the matters of great concern from the perspective of service delivery. The Supreme Court of India held healthcare as the fundamental right under article 21 of the constitution, but in practice, it has not been fundamentally right in India. Though Ayusman Bharat, is a well thought out project, intending healthcare for the masses, its delivery and sustainability is questionable. The paper is an attempt to discuss the problems inherent in the India’s healthcare system.

Abstract


India as the second most populous country of the world where more than 60% of its population rely on Agriculture and allied occupations, healthcare has remained the matter of concern. With a weak primary health sector, lack of skilled medical professionals, inadequacy of regulation for private hospitals, low public spending on health, fragmented health information system, rising cost of medical treatment in India, medical research in India having very little application and weak governance and accountability of the sector are the matters of great concern from the perspective of service delivery. The Supreme Court of India held healthcare as the fundamental right under article 21 of the constitution, but in practice, it has not been fundamentally right in India. Though Ayusman Bharat, is a well thought out project, intending healthcare for the masses, its delivery and sustainability is questionable. The paper is an attempt to discuss the problems inherent in the India’s healthcare system.
