Q.

According to Dr Prathap Chandra Reddy (Apollo), the country needs over 100,000 hospital beds over the next 10 years to bridge the existing gap in healthcare facilities along with adequate manpower to man these hospitals. "We need to double the number of doctors from 7 lakh to 1.7 million, treble the number of nurses from 8 lakh to 2.7 million and quadruple the number of paramedics.
Can India reach this level?

At least not in this birth! When it comes to providing health care to the billion plus population in India, we have a long way to go. Though India 5 % GDP on healthcare facilities but the concerned authority never bothers to care if the amount is reaching the right hand and that no corruption is taking place. The private sector enjoys high levels of investment, enterprise, and energy. Private hospitals, many with national brand names such as Apollo, Escort, and Manipal, have opened in most large cities, providing excellent facilities and cutting-edge technical care to those who can pay. What about the poor? For that Govt should pay proper attention to the Govt hospitals. Even if this much is taken care of, half the problem will solve.
