The India’s government has been blamed because of its public health system (Gupta, Kumra, & Maitra, 2005). It is said to be so ineffective such that most of the people prefer visiting private doctors. Studies indicate that the problem does not lie with the infrastructure, which is considered highly advanced, but it lies with the staffing.
The public health is understaffed making it hard for the government to fulfill its mandate to its publics of most of who are living below the poverty line. They cannot afford to attend private services.
Agarwal (2008) associates the prevailing problem with poor vaccine coverage, and in line with this, the government of India should ensure that its health system is well equipped with staff so that they can reach the growing number of children effectively. Otherwise, the rights of children and women will still remain at stake.
