JSA-PBI National Consultation on 'Strengthening Public Provisioning of Healthcare in India' 17-18 January, 2017

We have organised a JSA-PBI National Consultation on “Strengthening Public Provisioning of Healthcare in Indiaon 17-18 January, 2017 at YMCA, Jaisingh Road, New Delhi. This consultation was organised jointly by Jan Swasthya Abhiyan (JSA) and People's Budget Initiative (PBI).

JSA and PBI have come together for a joint Campaign in 6 States, viz. Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Odisha and Rajasthan. As part of this initiative, we are carrying out research and advocacy focusing on three key issues, namely, increasing overall budgetary allocation for healthcare; improving infrastructure and human resources; and ensuring availability of free generic medicines.

This is for the first time that the health rights organisations and budget groups have come together to work on specific demands and make a case for strengthening public provisioning of healthcare in India. This Consultation is being organised at the completion of our two-year long journey over which these groups have synergised their efforts and tried to impact the policy discourse on the specific issues.
