Srinath Reddy group report on Universal Health Coverage for India – download link

Here is the link to the High Level Experts Group report on Universal Health Coverage for India. The panel was headed by Dr. K. Srinath Reddy. It is a good document based on which there needs to be a public discussion on the future of healthcare in the country. http://planningcommission.nic.in/reports/genrep/rep_uhc0812.pdf

A series in The Lancet on UHC for India is here, via the World Health Organisation website.

After the Srinath Reddy-led group submitted its report to India’s Planning Commission, The Hindu wrote an editorial welcoming the proposal for a tax-funded system to guarantee basic health care for Indians. Read that here. The Hindu BusinessLine reported the same issue here.

Another report in The Hindu traces the recommendation of the panel to the Planning Commission, to do away with the Two Child Norm. That is here.
