An Assessment of Public Health in India: An Overview.

Mudasir Rajab*

Health care and demographic variables, which also assess the effectiveness and performance of the government in the health sector, serve to illustrate the state of health in any given nation. Additionally, it is important for national growth. Governments have a duty to protect the public's health, which they can only do by implementing sufficient social and health policies. The government plays a multifaceted and multidimensional role in public health concerns, serving as an insurer, a supplier of service, and a supervisor of the industry. Great advancements made possible by the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM), which was established in 2005, include the development of a core group of Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHAs), managed to improve hospital care, decentralisation at the district level to enhance intra- and multi-sectoral integration, and efficient resource utilisation. Population expansion, poverty, unanticipated natural and man-made catastrophes, the worldwide AIDS or influenza (H1N1) pandemic, inadequate coverage in rural and isolated regions, and the on-going threat of biological warfare are just a few of the issues that the government is now dealing with. In large part, lifestyle illnesses are on the rise. There are several solutions that may be pursued, including quick and efficient delivery of health services, finance for health care, and health legislation measures that are crucial to safeguarding and protecting the public's health. These must be stringent and explicitly state the role and responsibilities of public health. Government should prioritise the establishment of varied job possibilities at specific local locations wherever feasible in order to increase the buying power of the community. Securing a safe workplace environment is necessary for the industries. The highest degree of physical, social, and psychological wellness for all employees in all communities should be the goal of the government. In order to maintain the idea of fairness, it is still the responsibility of the government to guarantee the availability, accessibility, quality, and accountability of medical care to the population. The need of the hour is therefore for a well-organized, decentralised public health service system that will prioritise its use of resources while ensuring strong political support, community involvement, health legislation, health investment, and, most importantly, making health care a top priority.
