New Delhi: Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya on Thursday said that India should focus on building its own model to establish an affordable, accessible and high-quality healthcare system. Addressing a meeting with leading corporate hospitals here, Mandaviya stressed on the need to strengthen the vision of hospitals to provide high quality healthcare to the deserving population of the country.

According to a health ministry statement, he emphasized that the various challenges posed by hospitals can be addressed with the collective efforts of the government and stakeholders. “We can study best practices in the world,” the statement quoted the minister as saying. However, India should focus on developing its own model to establish an affordable and high quality health ecosystem. We need to make health accessible, affordable and patient-friendly.

The Health Minister emphasized on the contribution of hospitals in the successful implementation of any public health scheme. He said that the government is taking several initiatives like ‘Heal in India’ and ‘Heal by India’ to promote medical tourism. Mandaviya also highlighted the need to strengthen the vision of hospitals to provide high quality healthcare and assured full support to the industry in realizing Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of global health coverage. During the program, Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan said that there can be many obstacles during the transition but they can be removed during the journey.
