Trends in Corporatization of Health Services
This chapter analyses the role and social characteristics of market forces in the health service system in India. It argues that while there are studies that have individually focused on financing, provisioning, drugs and technology, there is a need to take a systemic view of it. It also examines the rise of corporate sector health care through the example of Apollo hospitals and illustrates the complex interaction between regional, national, and international capital and the support from the political class to facilitate the corporate sector in health care. The role of the diasporic networks and their access and influence on policymaking during the last three decades has been highlighted.
