By: Rao, Sujatha K.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: New Delhi Oxford University Press 2017Description: xxxi, 446 p.ISBN: 9780199469543.Subject(s): Medical policy - India | Medical economics - India | Public health - India | Medical care - India | Rural health services - IndiaDDC classification: 362.10954 Summary: India is one of the fastest-growing economies in the world. Yet health is not a part of our ambitious development story. In fact, India's disproportionately stingy healthcare budget makes some of the poorer nations look better in comparison. Statistics, however, speak louder than critics: we have one of the highest numbers of women dying in childbirth and under-five mortality rates. Every year nearly sixty million people get pushed below the poverty line due to the health expenditures that they incur. But there are a few bright spots too: India has eradicated polio and reversed the incidence of HIV/AIDS by an impressive margin. https://global.oup.com/academic/product/do-we-care-9780199469543?q=9780199469543&lang=en&cc=in#
