Jitendra Singh calls for ‘Make In India’ Healthcare Module

MoS PMO, Dr Jitendra Singh called for establishing a “Make in India” healthcare module, based on public-private partnership as well as multi-centric healthcare collaboration to meet the changing health needs is 21st century India.

Dr Jitendra Singh said, the Indian society, as a whole, is fast evolving and at the same time, in recent years, India too has become a part of shrunken global world and this phenomenon is impacting every sphere of life including the healthcare system.

While on the one hand, disorders like Diabetes and heart disease, which were hitherto confined to urban population, are now also on the rise in rural areas, on the other hand, the access to modern modalities of treatment is confined only to cities and big towns, as a result of which 70% of rural population gets access only to 1/3rd of country’s hospitalization facilities and over 600 million people in the country are deprived of access to affordable healthcare, he added.
