Further improvement in health services is necessary, arrangements should be made according to the population

There is one nurse for 483 people in our country. According to the report, there is a shortage of properly trained staff to deliver antibiotics in India, due to which life-saving medicines are not available to the patients. Recently, in a report released by the World Health Organization, it was told that diseases like heart disease, diabetes and cancer will affect India’s economy in the coming times.

It is true that gradually the health services of our country are improving, but the way health services were crumbling during the Corona period, it forced me to think that there is still a lot of improvement in health services. Had the health infrastructure of the country been better, more facilities could have been provided to the public during the first and second waves of Corona. Many doctors were discharging their duties by taking risks, while on the other hand, the focus of many private hospitals was only on getting financial benefits.

When even in this era, basic facilities like stretchers are not available in hospitals for patients suffering from serious diseases, then the health services of the country are bound to be questioned. Some time ago, NITI Aayog had stated the need to increase expenditure on health services. NITI Aayog member VK. Pal had said that to improve health services and make them accessible to every person in the country, the Center and the states will have to increase the expenditure on health services together.

It is a harsh fact that the health services in the country are in pathetic condition according to the population. Only 1.5 per cent of GDP is spent on healthcare in India. Many countries of the world are spending eight to nine per cent on health services. The number of people affected by infectious diseases has increased since the year 1940. Now many new diseases have come in front of us and in future, more new diseases may come in front of us.

According to a study published in the journal Nature, anthropological and demographic changes are the major reasons for the rise of infectious diseases. It is worth noting that in a report released by America’s Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics and Policy (CDDEP) recently, it was told that there is a shortage of about six lakh doctors and two million nurses in India. India has one government doctor for 10,189 people, while the World Health Organization has recommended one doctor for 1,000 people.

There is one nurse for 483 people in our country. According to the report, there is a shortage of properly trained staff to deliver antibiotics in India, due to which life-saving medicines are not available to the patients. Recently, in a report released by the World Health Organization, it was told that diseases like heart disease, diabetes and cancer will affect India’s economy in the coming times. According to the report, between 2012 and 2030, about $ 6.2 trillion (over Rs 41 lakh crore) is estimated to be spent on the treatment of these diseases.

The report states the risk of these diseases spreading rapidly in urban areas of India and China. Non-communicable diseases are not only a threat to the health of the urban population but are also expected to affect the economy. Increasing urbanization and working and lifestyle conditions there are the main reasons for the rise of non-communicable diseases. Between 2014 and 2050, 400 million people will be part of cities in India.

Due to this, the situation will be worse due to unplanned development in the cities. The availability of doctors in India is worse than in countries like Vietnam and Algeria. At present, there are about 7.5 lakh active doctors in our country. Due to a shortage of doctors, there is a delay in getting health facilities to the poor people. This condition ultimately affects the health of the whole country. The Parliamentary Committee on Health and Family Welfare, in its report released recently, has recognized that there are many reasons for not getting timely health facilities to the common people in our country.

Therefore, there is a need to intensify the health facilities. Ironically, like other government schemes in India, health schemes are also victims of fraud. A serious initiative is needed to bring the poor health services back on track for the economic and social development of the country.
