Big Ideas for India Contest: Question 11: What can be done to improve quality and availability of healthcare across India?

One of the more stark indicators of India’s health challenges is that half of India’s kids below five years of age suffer from malnourishment.Together with education, health is the other social sector that needs urgent attention. With costs of healthcare rising and insurance still not widespread, there is a crying need to ensure that there is as much focus on prevention as on cure. That a large percentage of India still lives in rural areas compounds the problem since making available quality healthcare at a reasonable cost across the country becomes a logistical challenge.

What should India do to address the healthcare challenge?
