Global healthcare is at the frontier of change. Health is serious business. Healthcare delayed is healthcare denied, and India needs to ensure affordable and accessible healthcare to all, at all times!. More than saving human lives, humanity needs to be saved in India. If every citizen of the country is considerate of this simple rule, all other perils of the healthcare ecosystem in India shall, slowly but surely, be solved. Pharma Leaders Group headquartered in Mumbai, India organized the iconic & historical its 12th annual edition of Pharma Leaders 12th momentous year where the focus was on patient care & looking beyond the headline. Against the above backgrounder, Pharma Leaders, Nation’s pioneer media in healthcare communications with close to two decades of understanding the healthcare landscape in India hosted the most awaited & iconic 12th Annual Pharma Leaders Summit & Awards 2019 under the theme “Healthcare Innovations – Beyond the Headlines”
Pharma Leaders is an independent media house that voices the opinions of the key stakeholders of the country in an independent & unbiased way. We are unafraid & unmoved when comes to truthful reporting as we feel we have a responsibility to tell the world the story as it is. We are independent. We are bold & restless. We are not e to please or displease the authorities but to present facts based on our strong research & ground reporting said Satya Brahma, Chairman & Editor-In-Chief of Pharma Leaders Group.
Delivering the Welcome Address, Satya said healthcare in india has been in deep shambles & need deep introspection. Satya says that Healthcare is a fundamental right, but it is not fundamentally right in India. The Supreme Court has held healthcare to be a fundamental right under Article 21 of the Constitution. However, historical public spending of just over a percent of GDP on healthcare has ensured that the country’s healthcare need has remained underserved and left for the private sector to service. The fundamental aspect of healthcare — primary healthcare — is in shambles. There is only one primary healthcare centre (often manned by one doctor) for more than 51,000 people in the country. The World Bank estimates that 90% of all health needs can be met at the primary healthcare level. India has grossly under-invested in the area that should matter the most.
Satya’s perception on healthcare innovations point out the poor state of healthcare conditions in the country. India is at the crossroads with the government rolling out the biggest publicly funded healthcare plan in the world In healthcare but at a time when Universal Health Coverage has become the new buzzword of healthcare in India since Ayushman Bharat, the National Health Profile 2019 throws up sobering figures. Among those who addressed the Summit included some of the biggest names in the healthcare profession.
