Main Description
Improvements in health status, as well as health care, are treated as integrated components of the development process. Since health is a product of multivariate production processes, in which medical care is just one of the many inputs, the impact of the state intervention on health status depends on its overall socio-economic policies. Rapid urbanization, industrialization, changes in lifestyle, and the consequent hike in risk factors - such as tobacco use, unhealthy diet, and physical inactivity - have caused an increase in chronic illness. There are also overriding environmental and mental health issues that cannot be overlooked. The burden of communicable and non-communicable diseases also present a formidable challenge on the already resource-constrained health systems of different countries. The withdrawal of the public sector from the health care segment has further worsened the situation of patients. These multifaceted problems call for a development approach on basic health care issues. This book covers different aspects and issues related to health and development. Based on research conducted in India, the main themes include the health care system and policy, health and development, equity and health, and health status and health security.
