India Should Prioritize Public Health By Increasing Spending, Setting Transparent, Measurable Goals

Al Jazeera America: Fixing the broken bones of India’s health system
Akash Goel, physician and journalist

“… [India Prime Minister Narendra] Modi should prioritize the health of his people. … He can start in two simple ways. First, India’s public health expenditures should reflect global standards. … The second way Modi can prioritize health is by embracing data transparency and setting standardized goals for environmental and public health outcomes. … Investing in and targeting health outcomes will yield dividends many times over, through increases in productivity and, in turn, economic growth. This is prudent policy, not only for India’s people but also for it’s future” (9/29).
