PMJAY: Creating a new ecosystem to provide universal health coverage

India’s healthcare sector is in need of a tectonic shift as the country has one of the lowest per capita spends on healthcare, leading to lower Universal Health Coverage (UHC). This has resulted in higher out of pocket expenditure (OOPE) and has become a major burden for the population, especially the vulnerable sections of society. Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (PMJAY) is a major government policy initiative for this section of the society.

The healthcare agenda: Stakeholder collaboration for the way forward

The private sector in the country’s healthcare landscape is now assuming the centre stage. The need of the hour is to identify and strengthen the support pillars of healthcare delivery systems. These may include production of quality manpower, technology-enabled solutions like mobile health and adoption of low-cost drugs and vaccines. Going forward, the action agenda is to foster a multi-stakeholder collaborative approach with a common objective of providing healthcare to masses.
