We are in the year 2020 now, and we reflect on the past and dream of a Healthy India. Here are some points we need to ponder on, which can help us reach better heights of health.
There is a delay in the diagnosis of tuberculosis, especially among the sparse population, who do not visit a doctor until the symptoms have become severe. Poor nutrition also affects the result of the treatment. In this new year, we wish more patients of tuberculosis are provided with compassionate healthcare, nutritious food and income opportunities they need, to get rid of this disease.
The need for Primary Healthcare Centres to furnish care closer to home, paying attention to prevention and early detection, has never been very acute in India. Generating more of them will significantly improve the population’s health outcomes, even as they reduce the overall need for hospital care. In turn, this will reduce the load on doctors, nurses, lab-workers, technicians and other hospital staff.
India does have a large number of primary healthcare centres and subcenters, but are not enough. A report the Centre for Policy Research, New Delhi, released last year showed that in 14 states, not one single of these facilities meet the National Public Health Standards set by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
There are two parts of the Government’s—”Ayushman Bharat Scheme”. Out of them, the Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana [the universal health insurance scheme], has received more attention and resources.
To mention an example–A Primary Healthcare centre in the tribal district of Dungarpur deals with medical emergencies, provides outpatient care, conducts safe childbirth and provides preventive care to women and children.
Wish all primary healthcare centres in the country provide similar care with dignity, especially to the needy and deprived.
Ø Girls and Women can access health care whenever they require—Gender discrimination in India begins with the birth of a girl. The way such prejudice manifests is when parents take lesser, girls and women, to the healthcare facilities for medical assistance when they need it. Example–In specialized newborn-care units in the country, more boys than girls are admitted, confirming an unsettling truth: Inequity begins at birth.
In this new year–2020, we hope to see a Healthy Planet with more women and girls receiving healthcare when they need it. We also hope that both the state and central governments are more enterprising on this front.
Our team at EKAM Foundation works towards providing quality healthcare to needy children and mothers in India. The foundation was started with an underlying theory that no child should be denied the right to healthcare. EKAM’s vision is to work for the wellbeing of children and mothers; and thereby contribute to a reduction in infant, childhood, adolescent and maternal deaths. EKAM is a distinctive health care model, primarily focusing on neonates, infants and pregnant women.
