The double-burden of disease, shortage of medical professionals, lower investments, low penetration of health insurance, huge gap of service delivery in rural and urban areas, lack of quality and affordable medical care are the key challenges of the country. The Global Burden of Disease Report 2017 ranked India at 154 out of 195 countries in terms of accessibility to healthcare. To take on the challenges of the Indian Healthcare sector, Apex Healthcare Industry body (NATHEALTH) will be organising a high-impact two day National Health Summit in New Delhi on November 28-29, 2019.
The NATHEALTH Summit would be focus on Digital Health, Investment, Skilling and Mainstreaming Innovation, to drive a stronger healthcare narrative and achieve impeccable delivery of a Modern Healthcare System “Made in India” for India. The summit will bring together the entire gamut of players, decision makers, Domain Experts and Academicians to reimagining collaboration to strengthen India’s healthcare growth trajectory.
“The Summit aims to herald a paradigm shift in the way the sector is perceived to grow. The trust barometer among the providers, payers, regulators and the end consumers in the healthcare ecosystem has spiralled down to new lows. The new Government can provide the much needed leverage to the existing schemes and programs and help create new dimensions of growth, infuse positive conversations, besides building a stronger narrative for healthcare in India,” said Dr Sudarshan Ballal, President, NATHEALTH.
“Today, we stand at crossroads of time which is ready for change. The path to achieve this holistic goal hinges on collaboration, where all the key industry stakeholders can come together, deliberate, cooperate and work in tandem to bridge the vital gaps in service delivery,” he added.
