  • 1. HEALING TOUCH UNIVERSALISING ACCESS TO PRIMARY HEALTH CARE IN INDIA DIT UNIVERSITY BY- AKHIL BANSAL, ANINDO CHATTERJEE, GURTEJ SINGH, PAWAN KUMAR, ROHAN BHOWMICK
  • 2. WHY THIS TOPIC?  At the turn of this century, health outcomes in India and the quality of the underlying health system significantly lagged those of peer nations. The situation is further complicated by inequity in healthcare access across states. Infrastructure gaps will need to be closed.  We begin with an assessment of the progress made in the last decade and the learning for the path ahead.
  • 3. At the turn of the entury, India’s Infant Mortality Rate(IMR),Material Mortality Ratio(MMR) lagged behind the average for the low and middle income countries(LMIC),as did its life expectancy. Moreover, health outcomes varied dramatically across states. Maternal and Infant Mortality Rates in India's poorest districts are worse than the sub-Saharan Africa. India represents 21% of the global diseases burden with the largest burden of communicable diseases in the world.
  • 4. According to the approach paper for the 12th five year plan, in 2010, 10% of posts of doctors at the primary health centres, 63% of the specialist posts at the community health centres, 25% of the nursing posts at PHCs and CHCs combined, 27% posts of pharmacist, and 50% of laboratory technician posts are vacant. India has a very low hospital bed density of 0.9 per thousand people, which is less than one-third the WHO norms of three beds per thousand people.
  • 5. THE SOLUTION  It is difficult for the government alone to combat the problems on Primary Healthcare, so the government requires input and co-operation from the common man.  With a little out-of-the-box thinking, the govt and common man can join hands and form an organisation which will help in the betterment of primary healthcare in India.
  • 6. THE ORGANIZATION LOCALDISTRICTSTATE GOVT. HEALTH MINISTRY DEPT. TEAM OF REPUTED DOCTORS COLLEGE VOLUNTEERS PROFESSIONAL VOLUNTEERS LOCALITES WITH A PREFERABLE BACKGROUND IN MEDICINE
  • 7. FUNDING THE ORGANIZATION FUNDS Voluntary funding by the local people whi h will e olle ted y the lo ality’s Resident Welfare Association and deposited to the district level officials. To encourage such charitable funds, some national appreciation for the same shall increase the popularity of the movement. The Health Ministry can help THE ORGANIZATION by organizing seminars, check-up camps and bear its expenses. Formation of clubs and groups in colleges/schools with the prime objective of spreading awareness about THE ORGANIZATION and its motive. This club will play a further role in collection of funds in cash and kind from fellow college/school peers.
  • 8. WORKING OF THE ORGANIZATION  Increasing availability of Generic Medicines, which will increase the affordability, especially for people below the poverty line.  THE ORGANIZATION will conduct a survey (on the basis of geographical and climatic factors) and based on the report of the survey, medicine density will be increased to specific regions.  THE ORGANIZATION will issue a medical card which will entitle people to take free bus services when in need which will transport them to the nearest PHC. THE ORGANIZATION will also look towards the establishing of special routes and lanes which will act as a shortcuts to transport patients swiftly and obstruction-free.  THE ORGANIZATION will help in women empowerment by appointing women medical practitioners who can help women patients with their health problems which will in turn help women patients to discuss their problems freely and comfortably.  Seminars and Camps will be organized by THE ORGANIZATION to eradicate superstitions, medieval beliefs and bring about awareness of modern medical facilities among the illiterate mass.  THE ORGANIZATION will create a nationwide online database which will allow the people to access their transaction information and it will have real time updates to enable transparency.
  • 9. SUSTAINABILITY If this organization will work for the betterment of health care, it will become a part and parcel of daily life and the common man, especially the youth would promote this organization and fuel it with determination and dedication.
