India has achieved substantial improvement in its health indicators. Life expectancy has increased, infant and maternal mortality has declined, and the coverage of most of the National Health Programmes is better. However, this progress is uneven; there are large Statewide variations, and performance in some States is abysmally low.Lack of accountability is plaguing the Indian health system.
A separate public health cadre at district level should be created with suitable avenues for upgradation of educational qualification to postgraduate level, i.e., Master of Public Health and MD in Community Medicine. They should be entrusted with the management of National Health Programmes for TB, HIV, RCH, etc., and health institutions. Syllabus:
