Issues of Concern

Community health Mission was established in 2015 with a noble vision to fulfill the commitment of the government of India as stated by Bhore’s Committee in 1946

“NO INDIVIDUAL SHALL FAIL TO SECURE ADEQUATE MEDICAL CARE BECAUSE OF THE INABILITY TO PAY FOR IT”

Despite the inputs given by Bhore’s Committee in 1946 to Government of India, even after 72 years India ranks 145th among 195 countries in terms of quality and accessibility of healthcare, behind our neighbors like China, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Bhutan, according to a Lancet study.

Various Issues of Concern are:

India have hospital bed to population ratio of 0.9 beds per 1000 population. According to WHO standards, a minimum of 2.9 beds per 1000 is required. The new healthcare policy which was released by the government in March 2017 mandates a minimum of 2 beds per 1000. Huge gap in healthcare infrastructure is present.

Lack of Skilled manpower specially in healthcare sector. At present India has doctor: population ration of 1:2000 and Nurse: population at 1:2950. Also, there is a huge deficiency of paramedical and other healthcare workers to cater to the Indian Population which is growing continuously.

Huge burden of out of pocket expenses for availing preventive and primary healthcare services resulting in additional financial burden on the patient as well as his/her family. It is stated that in 2017 alone 55 million Indian population went below poverty line due to out of pocket medical expenses.

Inadequate healthcare insurance and assurance support from various Government schemes and programs. Though government is increasing the annual health budget from 3% of GDP to 4.5% still a lot of investment is required in creating the healthcare infrastructure and human resource.

Increase in the disease load of Non-Communicable and lifestyle diseases and lack of awareness among population.

Highly complicated and administratively exhaustive government mechanism to avail benefits from various healthcare schemes and programs as run by State and central Government for the beneficiaries.

Lack of health-related awareness and information among population.
