India’s steps for better healthcare are of a larger scale: providing the benefits under PMJAY to more than 50 crore people, which is in addition to the steps to provide free generic medicines and free diagnostic facilities, has turned out to be a game-changer, because, under the Jan Aushadi Scheme of the Government, the availability of essential medicines at reasonable prices has been made possible. The common people in general and the destitute in particular have benefited significantly from this initiative. It would not be exaggerating at all to argue that these poor-centric initiatives have improved lives across the country and have indeed made a difference. Over time, the government has also made sure to put more emphasis on general immunisation, which had previously suffered as a result of COVID-19; the emphasis has returned to preventive healthcare, and the budget for enhanced immunisation has been increased nationwide, aiding India in lowering the incidence of diseases.
More so, launching telemedicine, teleradiology services, the National Health Information Network, and the Digital Health Mission in the country is all set to take healthcare service delivery to an entirely new level while giving the National Health Mission more support for efficient healthcare service delivery in the country’s rural areas is something that is excelling and making a difference in its sphere. Overall, the government has done a great job of improving infrastructure and healthcare for its population, which is a testament to its dedication to ensuring the health and well-being of its citizens. The system may continue to advance, which would enhance the quality of service delivery when it comes to the healthcare of people.
