Better Preventive and Curative Health Care

India's health indicators are not improving as fast as other socio-economic indicators. Good healthcare is perceived to be either unavailable or unaffordable. How can we improve healthcare conditions, both curative and preventive, especially relating to women and children?

Ensure that people get four basic things, in universal coverage....water that is drinkable, breastfeeding of infants, food to eat, and minimum health care. You will reduce diarrhea which is the major killer, you will reduce newborn infections another major killer, and pneumonia the 3rd major killer will also go down. All that is based on what WHO recommends.

We see lots of creative advertisements to promote products. Why not advertise and more importantly educate about (a) washing hands (b) simple dos and don'ts so that preventive health care starts at home, and becomes a habit.

We have seen polio drops drive to be reasonably effective. Why not similar drives for other disease preventions - say diarrohea, pneumonia? Might not be easy, atleast spread awareness through regular campaigns across the states/country.

People in our country watch many movies, and watch television serials. Plenty of Advertisements and cricket. Let us make it compulsory to advertise/educate about disease prevention and simple practical methods. Leave it to a group of private companies/councils to make this education successful.

• The main reasons for the disease burden in rural and urban settings are diametrically opposite. Rural population has problems of under nourishment whereas in urban setting the burden is due to over nourishment, and unhealthy life style. Hence the strategy adopted has to be different.
• Every rural or urban poor individual should be entitled to a free, complete check up every 6 months. This will detect onset of disease/s in early stages and the cost of treatment would be less.
• Corporate and Government employees should undergo periodic fitness programs and be encouraged to keep fit.
• Ayurveda covers aspects of healthy living (Swasthya Vritta). Awareness should be created so that more and more people adopt this life style and remain healthy.

Implementing atleast once a year preventive screening covering major killers in an accessable and affordable mode, using appropriate technology and may be linking with some incentive/s assured under already exisiting govt schemes. Using simple to use biometrics to store data, to track the individual minimizes much of duplication. Imparting basic program management skills to grass root staff to monitor the implementation of IDSP is another supplemental activity to enhance the pace.
