The COVID-19 outbreak has made the world realise and appreciate the importance of having a robust healthcare system, one that is fully equipped and battle-ready. The disease poses a huge threat in today's increasingly interconnected and interdependent world.

 

India's healthcare system has major inadequacies. A part of the reason for this is that India spends merely 1.28 percent of its GDP on health, as per the National Health Profile-2019 report. Our spending on healthcare is substantially lower than that of most other countries, including some of our neighbours (for example, Bhutan spends 2.5 percent of its GDP and Sri Lanka spends 1.6 percent of its GDP on healthcare.)

 

Due to inadequate investment in health facilities, the number of people who are unable to access good healthcare keeps growing. For most ailments, the majority of people visit clinics that are short on resources, and so cannot provide holistic treatment. The poor, particularly in rural areas, have to travel very long distances to be able to access proper medical facilities.

 

We see SDG's and CSR working for many various causes and hence in this episode, we would be emphasizing majorly on how the Indian healthcare system could be improved by the involvement of SDG's and CSR.
