Time to Walk the Talk

Anamika Sahu, Managing EditorFor long, ‘Roti’, ‘Kapada’, aur ‘Makaan’ have been the basic requirements of human being. But in today’s time of sedentary lifestyle, healthcare and education too must be added to the list. With only a quarter of the population having access to better healthcare facilities, the state of Indian healthcare sector isn’t in good health itself. It needs revival through proper medication (laws, policies, monetary assistance, and more), as well as the experienced hands. While the country witnessed a meagre rise of 0.2 percent of GDP increase in healthcare expenditure in 2017-2018, we still have to catch up with the other developed countries.
On the other hand, the rising population is yet another precedence that needs to be taken care of. We are on the verge on being the world’s most populous country in a matter of few years. Shocking true that this is going act as yet another road block in the way of healthcare sector development, as we need more and more healthcare professionals and centres who can cater to not only the urban but rural segments too. While there will be a constant increase in the number of urban dwellers, the gap between healthcare services between the two segments will widen further. What will enable a better service is integration of technology a dimension that will further better with implementation of AI, ML and other innovations.
