Indo UK Institute of Health (IUIH) firmly believes that the largest PPP project by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is the way forward to improve healthcare in India
As a country, India accounts for 20 per cent of the global disease burden and only 12-15 per cent of Indian population is under health insurance cover. Private sector caters to over 90 per cent of hospitals, 80 per cent of doctors, 80 per cent of outdoor patient and close to 60 per cent of indoor patient care services in India. This overtly high dependence on private sector has debilitating effects on the poor leading to liquidation of their assets, indebtedness etc. Two-fifth of those hospitalised in India end up becoming BPL category (below poverty line) every year owing to out-of-pocket expenses being as high as 80 per cent.
Public Private Partnership (PPP) model, on which Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s flagship healthcare initiative, Ayushman Bharat, also popular as ‘ModiCare’, leverages on, can address these issues very effectively. We, at Indo UK Institute of Health (IUIH), the largest PPP project, firmly believe that it is the way forward to improve healthcare in India.
