What the National Health Policy 2017 Missed — Medical College in Every District and Postgraduate Training for Every Doctor
I welcome the announcement of National Health Policy 2017. In particular, raising public health expenditure to 2.5% of GDP by 2025 is a laudable target as is the aim to spend most of the government resources on primary care. I have argued previously that we cannot modernise our healthcare whilst ignoring the primary care. Primary care facilities need to be upgraded, provided with basic diagnostic facilities and funded to be able to lure doctors and nurses to work in remote corners of the country.
