Equity and Access

Given that health is a state subject, an independent working group of experts was set up in Maharashtra to evolve a framework for Universal Access to Health Care (UAHC) and it has developed a framework document for restructuring the public healthcare system and its financing that will help facilitate the implementation of a UAHC model. This chapter reviews how, over the years, the health financing strategy failed to develop a robust public health financed system through underinvestment in health and further discusses the financing strategy of the proposed Maharashtra UAHC model to establish universal access to healthcare.
