  1. 1. Universalizing access to quality primary healthcareUniversalizing access to quality primary healthcare BY SAVERA SHRADHA RAWAT DEEPAK PARIHAR HIMANSHU JOSHI SAALIM ZAIDI AYUSH AGARWAL
  2. 2. While India can competitively deliver world-class health care (witness the success of medical tourism) the country is seriously underperforming when it comes to taking care of its own. CURRENT HEALTH STATUS OF INDIA
  3. 3. Total expenditure on health is 4.2% of GDP. Of this, current public expenditure is only 1.1% of GDP. A serious problem is the improper allocation of public health care budget i.e. large and increasing proportion of expenditure on salaries (60 % to90%) and a markedly reduced (29% to 5%) proportion on non-salary components like medicines, equipment, fuel, etc. which has led to a waste of resources because the health personnel in place cannot work FINANCIAL ASPECTS OF CURRENT PROBLEM INDIA is the leading producer of Generic Drugs but it’s supply has fallen from 31% in 1987 to 9% in 2004 because the health personnel in place cannot work effectively without other supportive expenditure The WHO in its Alma Ata Declaration had recommended that public health care expenditures should be at least 5 per cent of GDP if equity and universal coverage are to be realized. Most socialist countries spend 3.5 percent Use of Generic Drugs in SPAIN help them save 2.4 billion per annum India is losing more than 6% of its GDP annually due to premature deaths and preventable illnesses,
  4. 4. Diseases Estimated deaths in South East Asia (2008 WHO data) Est. deaths in India* (2008) *Assuming 88% of these deaths were in India, since it accounts for 88% of the population in this region. However, official records show the numbers to be far lesser. For example, India had only around 1000 reported malaria deaths in 2008. However, when the entire SE Asian region is taken the number of estimated malaria deaths is 43,200. NEED FOR DOCTOR OF BASIC DISEASES??? Acc. to WHO South East Asian Countries are Bangladesh, Bhutan, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, India, Indonesia, Maldives, Myanmar, Nepal, Sri-Lanka, Thailand & Timor-Leste Tuberculosis 405974 357257 Malaria 43200 38016 Diarrhea 1141586 1004596 Dengue 7064 6216 Nutritional deficiencies 84,123 74028 Maternal conditions 80620 70946 Total 1762567 1551059 estimated malaria deaths is 43,200. Now this region has a total population of 1.3 billion and India had an estimated population of 1.15 billion in 2008. So it’s clearly implausible that despite having 88% of the population it only accounted for 2 percent of malaria deaths. So we’re assuming that 88% of all deaths caused by these diseases are in India. It’s extremely sad that so many Indians are losing their lives to diseases and conditions that could’ve been easily avoided with the most basic of healthcare services
  5. 5.  MBBS - Bachelors of medicine and bachelor Of Surgery. o The curriculum includes preclinical, para- clinical, clinical subjects comprising of social & preventive medicine, general medicine  BPHC - Bachelor Of Primary Health Care.  The Curriculum will only be limited to Diagnosis, treatment & Prevention of common diseases. MBBS BPHC WHAT WE NEED??? & preventive medicine, general medicine and general surgery.  5 year course  Total expenditure=12.5 lakh( in private institutions). o After graduation, many students opt for higher studies in US or other countries. treatment & Prevention of common diseases.  Curriculum should also include disaster management courses & logistics  3 years course  Total expenditure will be much less.  BPHC will be full time government employee  BPHC graduates will work for a period of 5 yrs in their native villages.
  6. 6. In the last two years AICTE received 500 applications from colleges seeking permission to shut down most of these colleges are in rural areas or Tier III cities ,utilizing these colleges to train BPHC students will be very cost effective as major infrastructure like classrooms are already present. We propose a 50-30-20 sharing of fees between central govt, state govt and student, where central & state government will bear 50%-30% of tuition THE PLAN & state government will bear 50%-30% of tuition fees respectively and student will pay 20 % and will sign an agreement to work in villages for minimum 05 years The performance of BPHC doctors will be analyzed annually by their Medical Officer preferably MD (Community Health Care). BPHC Gram Panchayat will also analyze the performance of BPHC independently. SELECTION PROCEDURE A national entrance exam to be conducted by Medical Council of India. Eligibility: Students who completed their intermediate with Biology as a subject
  7. 7. • Increase in the existing expenditure on public health care to 3% of GDP. Major hospitals and pharmaceutical companies should set up medical cells in villages where BPHC will work. STAKEHOLDER HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS GOVERNMENT CORPORATE Out of Pocket Expenditure At least 0.5% of the 2%(as set by the companies act 2013) to be spent on Health Care. Why only Tata Memorial Hospital when we have 72 companies with billion dollar net worth? • The BPHC doctors will wear logos of any company for 2 years which finances 25% of their education expenses CORPORATE SPONSORS 57.80 % 87.60 % 86% 78.80 % 13.80 % Brazil Russia India China South Africa
  8. 8. PROGRAMME SPONSOR PROGRAMME SPONSOR COMMUNICATION SPONSOR COMMUNICATION SPONSOR They will sponsor HELPING HANDS They will be the regional sponsors Will provide air ambulances, ambulances and medical supplies. They will sponsor communication equipments like cell phones and Aakash tablets For effective functioning it will be vital that BPHC have access to communication facilities
  9. 9. TRAINING COST For a 3 year course of PHC with study focused solely on basic diseases estimated cost will be around 3lakh for entire course. • Central Govt will pay only 50% i.e. 1.50 lakhs Total expenditure= 1.5 lakhs *593731 inhabited villages of India= Rs 9000 crore(approx) • State Govt will pay 30% i.e. 90,000 Total expenditure=90,000*of the 593731 villages = 5500 crore 91552 villages have population less than 200 So total expenditure will be much less 5% spending of profit on health care means 53,000crores Tax collection from corporations also increases every year sometimes as high as around 20% ESTIMATED COST OF IMPLEMENTATION So total expenditure will be much less India has enough for everyone’s NEED but not enough for anyone’s GREED. -Mahatma Gandhi ORGANISATION COST •Pay band 9300-34800 with 3% annual increment •Grade pay:4200 •Total expenditure = 1.6 lakhs * 593731 villages = Rs 10,000 crore 3%of India's 2012 GDP is 36,91,68,30,00,000 i.e. 3lakh crores Even in the worst economic conditions G.D.P. grows by 4% each year Apart from the training and salary of BPHC no additional investment would be required. We propose utilization of NRHM resources for equipments and other services.

  11. 11.  Central government should devise policy for providing better housing and education facility for children of Doctors to make rural posting more attractive  To avoid bankrupting the country with healthcare costs we must emphasize prevention, specifically teaching prevention.  There is a large no of engineering and management colleges which fail to attract students, encourage them to start nursing, pathology and other medical support courses by giving tax breaks and other incentives.  Large chunk of health care budget is spent on building infrastructure that ultimately goes to waste due to lack of maintenance. Private health care has a major presence in India, a PPP model can be implemented where private providers must provide health care to poor, for which the government will pay by utilizing Aadhar Cards .  Practitioners of Indigenous System of Medicines could extensively compensate for deficits in primary health care services. SUPPORTING MEASURES care services. Only 193 out of total 640 districts have a medical college. There are approximately 0.81 nurses per allopathic physician in India, this is not cost effective at all. India's ratio of nine hospital beds per 10,000 people is far from adequate
  12. 12. GRIEVANCE REDRESSAL MECHANISM  Complaints and suggestions can be directed to Gram Pradhans, Medical Officers, DM's, against all the BPHCs who ask for bribe or display negligence.  Suggestion Boxes for BPHC to be placed in all CHC&PHC LIMITATIONS  Only training the BPHC will not be enough, we have to ensure the people graduating from the course are competent enough to take care of their duties.  This idea requires a substantial spending on health care, it may be tough in the current economic scenario.
