Role of public private partnership in health sector for sustainable development
Health is essential to national progress in any country. Indian demography is dominated by rural people because of sustainable development; and for their socio-economic development nothing can be considered of higher importance than the health. Causes of low state of health include lack of a hygienic environment, low resistance to infections primarily due to poor nutrition, lack of safe water supply and of proper removal of human wastes. This paper being a descriptive study proposes for public private partnerships (PPP) to be acknowledged as a viable mode for development in health sector of rural India. PPP model has started showing promise and prospects in terms of greater mobilization of resources, greater efficiency and quality, reduced costs and access of services to the common man. The largest aspect of this model is the development of those aspects of poorest socio-economic group which they are capable to do. The paper cites examples of PPP as a mode to finance health care services can be of use to intended beneficiaries, leading to integrated and sustainable rural development.
