सरोकार-भारतीय स्वास्थ्य सेवाओं की चुनौतियां

Every year, 7th of April is celebrated as the World Health Day. In this edition of Sarokaar we try to explore the various health related concerns faced in India and how have we fared in tackling public healthcare.

A cursory look at the available data regarding healthcare suggests that a lot still needs to be done. A worrying rate of infant/maternal mortality, the swine flu outbreak, casualties due to Japanese Encephalitis, deaths from vaccine preventable diseases, poor or lack of medical equipment, etc. draws our attention to the reality which leaves a lot yet to be covered in terms of healthcare.

Public healthcare in India is still riddled with problem areas which need to be looked upon before it can be effective and available to all. Large population in our country is still deprived of quality and affordable healthcare.

Watch Sarokaar with eminent panellists bringing out various facets of the issue.
