“Countries must increase spending on primary healthcare by at least 1% of their GDP if the world is to close glaring coverage gaps and meet health targets agreed in 2015”, says a recent report of WHO.
Acc. to a Business Insider report:
India spent less than 2% of its GDP on healthcare making it the lowest contributor.
India’s spending on healthcare is even below some of the low-income countries which spend 1.4% of their GDP on health.
Recently India’s poorest state, Bihar faced a medical crisis when more than 150 children — mostly under the age of 10 and malnourished — died of an outbreak of Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) in Muzaffarpur district.
It is difficult for India to achieve targets like reducing the maternal mortality rate to 100 in 2018-20 and infant mortality to 28 deaths per 1000 live births by 2019.
India spent Rs.3 daily on healthcare.
Doctor patient ratio is 1:10,189 (WHO recommends a ratio of 1:1,000)
