Pink Revolution – Needs for Indian Health scenario
Pink Revolution in context to Heath is now a day talk of everybody. The meaning of Pink revolution for Health is that the affordable Health care for All.
There are lots of meaning of Pink revolution like Breast cancer awareness Champaign is also pink revolution and second mining is the modernization of India’s food particularly poultry and meat production is also known as Pink Revolution. But now the health for all is getting popular term with Pink Revolution.
The Awaaz web page is the key for this pink revolution for health sector. They have posted on web that “Let us start a PINK REVOLUTION of HEALTHCARE in INDIA, by investing 10% of GDP in public healthcare by the Govt now, from a shockingly low 1%!. Only 7 countries all round the world, spend less than we do, to look after the health of citizens! 230 Indian mothers die during childbirth, compared to 50 per 1 lakh childbirths in other BRIC countries. 66 Indian children under 5 yrs die in India, compared to 20 in other BRIC countries. Excellent facilities in hospitals, Primary Health Centres, for preventive & curative treatments, in the Government sector can and should be made possible with more funding and support. 400 million poor people need this kind of support badly and immediately. Indians have a RIGHT TO LIFE, and a RIGHT TO HEALTH is a vital part of this constitutional right. It is a duty of the Govt to provide good hospitals and medicines for all citizens now.”
So we need to help our country citizens for getting good health care. Government health system is the key for supplying services to all particularly who are poor. If government is not ready to provide the services and all services are chargeable, that means we are cheating our fellow citizens. Health and Education should be free for everybody. 400 million of our fellow citizens are living below poverty line and how will they get the health services? The BPL bench mark is 32/day INR.   1 severe or moderate illness episode in the life of these impoverished millions is enough to set them back in life even more & erase their already slim chances of improving their living conditions.
And sanitation, clean water, health education, also needs to be improved side by side with this also. A toilet in every house, clean drinking water, sewage & electricity connections to each house in India in needed now. Internet based and citizen based monitoring of spending and other controls can be implemented for effective funds utilization.
The awaaz also telling “Yes, we have to also work towards prevention of corruption in healthcare, as we do have to in other sectors. But it should not stop investment now. Corruption is not an excuse for the measly healthcare allocation that we have tolerated in india for so long. Let us all wake up and help our poor fellow citizens by this awesome step of vastly increased funding & healthcare upgradation by the Govt.”
