Healthcare in India (English)

Date: 19th June 2018

Going straight to the point, Healthcare in India is very expensive. There are too few Medical seats to accommodate high demand for doctors. 90% of qualified students don’t get admissions. More seats can help in relieving the pressure but aren’t successful at reducing the cost of healthcare. Doctors in financial shackles becoming employees of the system. They’re working not serving. It takes more than 20 years for a medical student to become debt free.

Costs are also going up because it’s a for-profit business now and it's being run as they running five star hotels and shopping malls. The patient-doctor pipeline is broken, faulty and leaking. Long times spent in educating and training, cost of education, prohibitive equipment & pharmaceutical costs, Hospital's operational expenses and fully trained doctors leaving India are the leaks in the system.
