NITI Aayog to organise dialogue on health system for "new India"

11/29/2018

New Delhi, NITI Aayog will begin a series of Development Dialogues to engage experts, thought leaders and government stakeholders across key avenues of long-term social and economic development. The first event will be a conference on "Health Systems for A New India: Building Blocks" on November 30. The conference will feature senior government functionaries, and eminent national and international experts in the healthcare space. The idea of a health system pertains to integrating existing and future programmes, financing, human resources and policies related to all dimensions of healthcare within the fabric of an all encompassing, inclusive, long-term, stable system. The conference is also an attempt by NITI to begin conversations around the mandated 15 year vision document for the country as a whole, according to an official statement here on Thursday. The discussions will include topics related to achieving standardized delivery of health across all levels of care in India’s mixed healthcare system, leveraging IT for healthcare and importantly, in a fiscally constrained environment, how can existing healthcare funds be mobilised more effectively and efficiently.
