▴ healthcare budget
By focusing on infrastructure, preventive care, research, workforce development, and fostering public-private partnerships, we can build a resilient and robust healthcare system and transform healthcare.

Pre-Budget Expectations for the Health Sector:

As the nation eagerly anticipates the upcoming budget, the health sector remains a focal point of discussion. The health sector is not just a critical component of public welfare but also a significant contributor to the nation’s GDP. Currently, the healthcare sector contributes approximately 1.7% to the GDP.


With strategic investments and reforms, this contribution can be significantly increased. The budget should aim to elevate the healthcare sector’s GDP contribution to around 5% over the next few years.


Investment in Healthcare Infrastructure

An increased budget allocation is crucial for building and upgrading hospitals, clinics, and diagnostic centers. This investment will not only improve access to healthcare services but also enhance the overall quality of care provided to patients.


Digital Health Mission

Efforts are underway to implement a digital health record system, ensuring seamless access to patient data and improved and ensure continuity of care.


Focus on Preventive Healthcare

Allocating funds towards preventive measures, including vaccination drives, public health campaigns, and regular health check-ups, can mitigate the long-term burden on our healthcare system. Campaigns on hygiene, nutrition, and regular health screenings should be initiated.


Strengthening Medical Research and Innovation

The budget should allocate funds for research in cutting-edge areas such as genomics, personalized medicine, and artificial intelligence in healthcare.


Enhancing Healthcare Workforce

It is essential that the budget includes provisions for training and development programs for doctors, nurses, technicians, and support staff.


Public-Private Partnerships

PPPs by offering tax incentives and simplified regulatory frameworks, bringing collaborations expertise and funding, thereby enhancing the overall efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare delivery.
