How to Provide Proper Health Care to the Comman Man
‘Health is wealth’. Man living on this earth can enjoy his life only when his health is perfect.
Only a healthy person can eat, work and sleep properly. However, rising pollution, fast and competitive lifestyle, lack of nutritious food, etc. have caused health woes for a large section of our population. Providing health care has become commercialised, money spinning business today. It is no longer a charitable and ethical activity. Of all the sectors in the world, health care occupies the first place. Based on the importance of the sector, the private sector is the dominant health care provider in India.
Private health care sector has overtaken the Government sector. Most health care expenses are paid by patients and their families which can be considered as health expenditure. Private medical sector remains the primary source of health care for 70% of households in urban areas and 63% of households in rural areas. This is because of large population. The other reason is all the government hospitals are over crowded and they lack proper equipments and facilities.
In order to provide proper health care to the common man, the government should increase the number of government hospitals, it should pass strict laws for private hospitals and in addition to these it should also create awareness on healthy lifestyles, nutritious food, etc. in rural area. The government should also provide health care in schools. Only the stringent implementation of necessary rules by the leaders of the nation can bring a change.
