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 shall 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. The discussions shall 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.
