We citizens also have a duty to take care of our health and not only criticize the government, with improving literacy we would understand healthcare better and contribute towards positive health of the community.
WHO has defined Health as “state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity” if we take this definition most of us are not healthy? There is a necessity to explain this definition to every fellow citizen and relevant functionaries. We as individuals should strive to achieve positive health, which is the duty of both state and individual. Health is a multisectoral approach and to achieve quality of life it is important that every department should plug in to be an integral part of a healthcare provider.
In our personal life we give more importance to money than health. Nation is healthy if individuals are healthy, but how much of the budget is allocated for health by governments in the last few decades. Pandemic has taught us lessons after we lost many precious lives. There is a lack of health infrastructure, manpower and rampant corruption was reported during the pandemic.
Things are improving but too late and too little. There are many initiatives the government has taken to create devices, increase the number of medical colleges/AIIMS to self-sustain health services as per norms of WHO but it would take a few years before it fructifies. It has also created the National Health Authority and digital health mission to bring more efficiency. It would provide healthcare id to all citizens, healthcare providers and hospitals/nursing homes and clinics. Pharmacies and chemists would also be roped in. It is a herculean task to give ids to such a big population. This platform once completed should culminate into better control and qualitative health care at optimum cost.
We citizens also have a duty to take care of our health and not only criticize the government, with improving literacy we would understand healthcare better and contribute towards positive health of the community. We at InnovatioCuris strive to create qualitative healthcare at optimum cost by various initiatives. There are new issues created by use of technology such as Cyber attacks etc. It also opens new doors for legal and ethical issues. It increases efficiency by use of technology like Artificial Intelligence and our team continuously conducts training of healthcare providers to make them aware of these newer issues. We want active participation of all to take healthcare to greater heights.
We have Yoga day today and for better health take care of these national initiatives which have now become global. The benefits of Yoga are scientifically proven and now adopted as “International Yoga Day”. Let us make India a healthy nation.
