This chapter presents an overview of the basic health indicators and status of healthcare in South Asia. It highlights the infrastructure and human resource requirements in this sector and thus the potential opportunity segments for commercial and collaborative engagement. It then analyzes policy trends and regulations in the healthcare sector to determine the extent to which health services have been opened up to private sector participation and foreign investment. It also describes the status of intra-regional trade, investment, and collaboration initiatives in health services, as well as some of the challenges limiting regional initiatives in health services in South Asia. In addition, it assesses the preparedness of the health services sector for liberalization. Finally, the chapter discusses the possible steps to furthering cooperation in health services in South Asia.
