Health Economics in India
Health is an important aspect of human resource development. Good health care facilities and services are essential so society can effectively contribute to social and economic development. With increased urbanization, industrialization, and the changing environment, health related issues and problems have become a great concern for the contemporary world. In India, scant literature is available on the concept of health and health economics. Many issues and aspects of Indian health have yet to be completely resolved. Little attention has been paid to the micro aspects of health economics by researchers, the government, policy makers, and the development planners. Health Economics in India provides the much needed material on health related topics, covering the different aspects and issues related to health including health status and development, tribal health, determinants of health, health care service delivery, and health sector financing and reforms.
