NITI Aayogs’s PPP Policy for Health Sector

Part of: GS Prelims and GS-II- Health and Governance

In News

  • The PPP plan drafted by NITI Aayofg involves linking private medical colleges with the government district hospitals, in which the private entities can convert half of the hospital beds into paid beds
    • Reason: Limited resources available with the Union and State governments
  • Criticism: 
    • Regressive model which commercialises the already small public health system 
  • It would further reduce access to public health institutions: especially when only 25% of non-hospitalised and 45% of hospitalised patients seek health care from public health institutions
    • Increases out-of-pocket health expenditure of Citizens
