    9. 9.  1. Health for all  Increase the health expenditure to GSDP ratio from 0.6 per cent in 2012 to 4-5 per cent by 2030. This will be achieved by one per cent point increase spread over the next five year plans  Reduce MMR from 81 to 12 per lakh live births  Reduce IMR from 13 to 6 per 1000 live births  Eradicate communicable diseases  Prioritise health areas to include mental diseases, alcoholism and suicides

    23. 23.  By 2000 – increasing burden of diseases  Mediflation  Now, Kerala‟s health care dependent on one‟s ability to pay, though with no assurance to quality  This is against a model which was once characterised by health security, whatever one‟s socio economic position, the state used to provide health care
    24. 24.  The state, which set an example for the rest of India and third world countries in providing primary health care, now gropes in the dark and is fast losing the edge  The great achievements in the field of mortality and fertility have reached a plateau and the morbidity rates and increasing.  It can no more be called as „good health at low cost‟  Kerala on the brink of a public health crisis
    25. 25.  epidemiologic transition  Kerala is now passing through the third stage of epidemiological transition  Life style diseases  But, some communicable diseases have reemerged and some new epidemics have emerged in the state.

    41. 41.  Private hospitals now surpass government facilities in the density of beds and employment of personnel.  More significantly, private hospitals have far outpaced government facilities in the provision of hi tech methods of diagnosis and therapy, such as computerized tomography (CT) scans, endoscopy units, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), neonatal care units, coronary units etc.
    42. 42.  factors outside the health sector could have facilitated the growth in the private sector.  rising disposable incomes  lack of barriers to opening a private hospital.  the ageing of the population.  reflected in the higher proportion of chronic diseases among them and their higher spending on health care.
    43. 43.  According to KSSP‟s study, on an average, in Kerala, a person spends almost Rs. 6,000 an year out of his own pocket to seek medical care.  This is four times the amount that a person used to spend from his pocket on health six years ago.  (KSSP‟s similar study in 2004 put the average own expense on health at Rs. 1,500).
    44. 44.  When this figure - Rs. 6,000 – is projected against the State‟s total population, the people in Kerala are spending a mammoth Rs. 19,000 cr. plus annually from their own pockets for health care.  This is apart from what the Government is currently spending on health care
    45. 45. The average annual out-of-pocket spending by a person with chronic illnesses was about Rs. 38,000.  The average out-of-pocket expenditure of a person in visiting OP (out-patient) clinics in the Government sector was Rs. 4,034 in an year. In the private sector, this OP expense was not very different at Rs. 4,739.  However, when it came to IP expenditure (inpatient), the average annual out-of-pocket expenditure was Rs. 6,267 against the figure of Rs. 30,800 in the private sector. Here again, this escalation in expenditure was mostly due to the involvement of expensive corporate hospitals. 
    46. 46. According to the National Family Health Survey India - 3 (NFHS – 3), with regard to Kerala:  56.1% children aged between 6-35 months are anemic  32.7 % ever-married women aged between 15-49 are anemic  33.8% pregnant women aged between 15-49 are anemic.  Infant mortality is estimated at 15 deaths before the age of one year per 1,000 
    47. 47.  Under-five mortality is 16 deaths per 1,000.  Perinatal mortality, which includes stillbirths and very early infant deaths (in  the first week of life), is estimated at 11 deaths per 1,000 pregnancies  Perinatal mortality in rural areas, at 15, is much higher than the rate in urban areas.
    48. 48.  As per the Audit Report (General and Social Sector) for the year ended 21March 2013, the percentage of malnourished children below the age of six years in the State ranged between 27 and 39.  Test check of records in Idukki, Malappuram, Palakkad and Thiruvananthapuram districts indicated that 110 out of 1180 children who died during 2011-12, were severely malnourished. the number of severely malnourished children in Palakkad was 4,633
    49. 49. the Auditor General in its report on ICDS  The percentage of child population who were not immunized against Polio and DPT in Palakkad and Malappuram districts were respectively 36 and 31.  The objective of universalization of Supplementary Nutrition Programme was not achieved as 56 to 66 per cent of the identified beneficiaries were not covered under the Scheme. 
    50. 50.  While the `Kerala Development Model‟ gained national and international appreciation as an adaptable development ideal, the experiences of the marginalized of Kerala was entirely excluded from the much acclaimed statistical information and academic studies.  Human Development Report 2005, which while discussing horizontal inequalities that persist in Kerala among Dalits, Adivasis and fishing communities, pointed out that:
    51. 51.  “….There is no denying one’s location within the network of social affiliation substantially affects one’s access to resources…”.  Tellingly, NFHS-3 states that the infant mortality rate changes sharply with household wealth and is higher for women who belong to other backward classes.
    52. 52.  The continuing deaths of children in the Attappady Hills, Palakkad district in Kerala has shocked the conscience of the entire country  The death of even one child due to malnutrition is a tragedy  this constitute a serious human rights violation and a breach of constitutional obligations
    53. 53.  If the state withdraws from the scene or goes for a public private partnership  ??????????????????????????????????????????????????????
    54. 54. A society that is healthy  Should meet the twin challenges of reemerging and emerging diseases  Provide an environment that is conducive to healthy life  That can afford and willing to meet the cost of health care  Take care of the old and weak  Regulate the unethical practices
    55. 55.  Clean drinking water  Sanitation facilities  Solid waste management  Poverty  Enforcement of regulation for good health – food safety act and public health act
    56. 56.  Linking the institutions in a networked care system  higher level of organisation and management  Revamping the primary care provider institutions, Community health centres, Taluk Head Quarters Hospital, District Hospitals and Medical College Hospitals
    57. 57.  Equipped to meet the new challenges –NCDs, Mental health, geriatric care  Population per SC – 5000 to be changed to 3000 or go for a four tier system  Or the SC and PHC should be enlarged  PHC should have standard design with patient waiting areas, separate and clean toilets, safe drinking water, examination room that respect the privacy of patients and a lab that offers all routine investigation  More medical officers
    58. 58.  Must be the source of specialist treatment. CHC should have facilities in pediatrics, general surgery, gynecology, obstetrics and general medicine  Facilities at the CHC would be utilized as a coordinating centre of pain and palliative care, terminal care and community mental health programme
    59. 59.  In addition to major specialities, other specialities such as ortho, ENT, dentistry, dermatology, psychiatry, ophthalmology  Blood bank facilities and second level lab facilities should be provided  First level trauma management
    60. 60.  To be upgraded in view of the increasing prevalence of NCDs and the challenge of managing co-morbidites  Dialysis, cardiac care, cancer care, neurological cases should be provided  Advanced laboratory facilities including CT scan should be provided  Doctors being offered PG and super specialty seats under government quota in Medical College should be earmarked for posting in district hospitals
    61. 61.  Ayurveda  Homeo  Medical College hospitals – quality and research.
    62. 62.  Systems to be devised to ensure that person educated through public resources are available to serve the public should the need arise  The state can provide manpower for export or to meet the needs of private providers with government effectively discharging the regulation functions  Need for clinical specialty and super specialty seats in view of increasing demand for tertiary care
    63. 63.  New courses are needed in geriatric, emergency and critical care and family medicine, M.Ed courses which enables specialty practices  Continuing medical education
    64. 64.  Develop and improve systems to ensure governance of the health system  A) establish a public health cadre  B) improve regulatory environment  C) system of multi sectoral collaboration  D) addressing the special needs of special population  E) ensure quality of drugs and make them affordable  F) improve regulatory environment
    65. 65.  1. control and management of communicable diseases promotion of good health and prevention building a cadre of public health leaders levels of vaccination should be high enough to ensure vaccine preventable diseases based on seasonality and epidemiology the state should take advanced action to prevent the spread of diseases need for formalising and strengthening structures such as the ward level health and sanitation committees and health standing committees of LSGs
    66. 66.  2. Prevention and management of lifestyle related diseases. a holistic approach leading from preventive action for the healthy, screening for the high risk population, primary care for the affected, tertiary for the acute cases and palliative care for the terminally ill patients  Prevention of accidents, trauma care  Reduction of IMR, MMR etc  Mental Health  Health of the aged and palliative care
    67. 67.  Thus if the KPP is aimed at fostering sustainable and inclusive growth of the economy the strategies visualised in the Perspective Plan 2030 will totally derail the whole system.
    68. 68.  To be inclusive  Growth must carry the many with it  Secondly, it must satisfy the widest range of our material needs  It must address the binding constraints  And the question of distribution - ie Are the emerging opportunities being distributed equally
    69. 69.  Growth does raise household incomes and helps to remove poverty, especially if health, education and other basic capabilities that enable people to participate in the growth process are widely shared  If KPP is followed Keralites will become the most ill healthy population in the world  There is a strong case for forceful public demand for much larger allocations to basic public services like health
    70. 70.  The constructive use of public resources generated by economic growth to enhance human capabilities contributes not only to the quality of life but also to higher productivity and further growth
