Monitoring Universal Health Coverage in India

India’s health care services are mainly financed by individuals at the point of care. At ~ 70% of total health expenditure, it is one of the highest in the world. The government is making various efforts to reduce this OOP expenses by introducing many schemes, e.g. the free medicine scheme, the RSBY, free tertiary care, etc. The government hopes that this will help India reduce OOP expenses and move towards Universal Health Coverage (UHC), as pledged in the Sustainable Development Goals. IPH would like to track the status of UHC in India using a multi centric study that captures data from across India. This will be analysed every two years and the feedback provided to the respective state and national governments so that they can modify their strategies. A concept note is provided Click here
