Shame on India

Post by Rashmun on Thu May 18, 2017 9:41 pm

India continues to be one of the poor performers ranking at 154, much below China, Sri Lanka and even Bangladesh, in terms of quality and accessibility of healthcare, according to the new Global Burden of Disease study published in the Lancet.

The study points that despite the country's socio-economic development, India has failed to achieve in healthcare goals and the gap between the score and predicted score has widened in the last 25 years.

Wow!

India needs to work on providing access to quality healthcare at affordable prices. (HT File Photo)
The quality of healthcare in India is way behind its neighbours, including Bangladesh, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and China, shows a recent study. Out of 195 countries analysed for the study, India is ranked 154th.

The Global Burden of Disease study published in the medical journal The Lancet says in the past 25 years, India’s healthcare access and quality (HAQ) index has seen an increase of 14.1, going up from 30.7 in 1990 to 44.8 in 2015 on a scale of 100.

However, it is not good enough as the numbers are far behind than its neighbouring countries such as Sri Lanka (72.8 ), Bangladesh (51.7), Bhutan (52.7) and Nepal (50.8 ).

Newborns in India have a lesser chance of survival than babies born in Afghanistan and Somalia, according to the latest Global Burden of Disease (GBD) study published in the medical journal The Lancet.

In the GBD rankings for healthcare access and quality (HAQ), India has fallen 11 places, and now ranks 154 out of 195 countries. Further, India’s healthcare index of 44.8 is the lowest among the sub-continental countries, as Sri Lanka (72.Cool, Bangladesh (51.7), Bhutan (52.7), and Nepal (50.Cool all fared better. The top-ranked nation was Andorra with an overall score of 95 and the lowest-ranked nation was Central African Republic at 29.

India’s downward slide in the rankings indicates that it has failed to achieve health care targets, especially those concerning neonatal disorders, maternal health, tuberculosis, and rheumatic heart disease. Last year, India was ranked 143 among 188 countries.

In the case of neonatal mortality, on a scale of 1 to 100, India scored 14 in the HAQ index, while Afghanistan scored 19/100 and Somalia, 21/100. Access to tuberculosis treatment in India was scored 26 out of 100, lower than Pakistan (29), Congo (30) and Djibouti (29). For diabetes, chronic kidney diseases, and congenital heart diseases, India scored 38, 20, and 45, respectively.
