Public healthcare over the last decade has been a low priority for India. India’s public expenditure on health as a percentage of the GDP was far lower than many countries. However, the public health sector has now got its due importance because of the pandemic.
COVID brought the need for a fast-paced, well-equipped, and focussed approach to healthcare and its systems in India. This meant an increase in healthcare facilities, strengthening the healthcare workforce, trained healthcare professionals, implementing data-driven health policies, better and quality health care products, cost-effective medicines and vaccines, and more.
India’s Universal Immunization Programme is the largest public health intervention globally, but the growing population, lack of awareness, hygiene issues, and access to medical systems put relentless pressure on the healthcare facilities and operations.
This webinar is about how to re-imagine, re-align and re-set the future of the health of India.
