The Economist Intelligence Unit report: Global Access to Healthcare
Now, in a new study published by The Economist Intelligence Unit on Global Access to Healthcare, India finds itself among the worst 10 in equity of access to health care.
This report looks into how healthcare systems across 60 countries are working to offer solutions to the most pressing healthcare needs of their populations.
The key findings are:
- Political will and a social compact are prerequisites for both access and sustainable health systems.
- Public investment underpins good access and demonstrates the commitment of governments to ensuring the health of their populations
- Universal coverage does not mean universal access, but extending universal health coverage (UHC) can be a crucial part of improving access.
