Health Care in India

The system used for healthcare in the country is universal, and it is applied in all states in India. Even though the government tries to make healthcare available for everybody in the country, regardless of their financial situation, the country is underfinanced and there is not enough staff to cover all sectors in the country.

Due to the inadequate infrastructure and the lack of medication and staff many people is forced to visit private clinics.

This all goes according to the economical situation of the patient and if whether she/she is under the line of poverty or not.

Primary Healthcare in India focuses on child birth, prevention of malnutrition, immunization, postnatal care and general illnesses treatment. It is in rural health centers and district hospitals where Primary Healthcare is provided and free of cost.
