Even after 72 years of independence, every Indian who has the fundamental right to healthcare is not getting right kind of attention as it is required. It may arise due to negligence or due to vast demographic boundaries and huge population that can be a reason of lack of medical facilities to the needy. Every government in power makes strenuous effort in engaging medical infrastructure and resources to cater the basic or at least involves in the establishment of primary health care centers. In rural India, it is noticed that poor and poorer of the poorest have less access to medical facilities. Health care record in rural India is highly pathetic and Primary Health Care Centers (PHCs) are not properly maintained and do have medical staff (8%), doctors (8%), and technicians (39%) and pharmacists (18%).
In the recent time, BJP has come up with an insurance scheme that covers at least 5 lakh on every individual in Ayushman Bharat, a scheme that enables millions of citizens to afford heavy medical bills on hospitalization at a nominal premium. It is still important to see that the basic primary health care centers are at the reach of the poor and it can to a certain extend be it possible when social organizations that reside in and around communities get together to benefit poor by rendering medical facilities. In this issue, Para Association for Rural Development has carved in its mission to support local communities in rural areas for medical facilities.
