DELHI GLOBALLY LAGS BEHIND IN HEALTH CARE

24 Jan 17

A new report by the New York University suggests that the progress of health care system in Delhi is insufficient for a global city.

India has economically grown over the past decade. It has accomplished many innovations and productions in the health care and pharmaceutical field. But it lacks in assuring minimal standards of sanitation and public health in comparison to other big middle-income countries like Brazil, Russia and China (BRIC).

Between 2004 and 2013, India’s economy grew rapidly. But the premature death rate due to reasons for which effective treatments are available (amenable mortality) increased by 25% in Delhi. The major mortality causes were tuberculosis and septicemia. Maternal mortality rate also exceeded the global levels of BRIC. During this time, cities in BRIC displayed a reduction in amenable mortality by a minimum of 25%.

The study’s authors concluded that Delhi and the rest of India will not make notable improvements in these results unless they do three things. Firstly, they should considerably increase spending towards public health. Secondly, they should monitor the performance of the health system. And thirdly, the government should enhance its potential to adopt and implement deprivation eliminating programs.
