Updated: June 11 2014 8:00 am It is not clear why the government is planning to establish more AIIMS-like hospitals Related News The ministry of health is reportedly planning to open 10 more AIIMS-like institutes as well as cancer centres in different states Creating new cancer centres is desirable given the burden of the disease and the inadequate number of treatment centres Today cancer is one of the main causes of premature mortality in our country and the 25 regional cancer centres are not being able to cope with the high load of patients Additional cancer centres would definitely be meeting a badly felt need However it is not clear why the government is planning to establish more AIIMS-like hospitals The health ministry may wrongly believe that India needs more such centres of excellence to train doctors as well as to provide high quality healthcare services to people However such a move has serious implications for the rest of the health system The government spends about 13 per cent of the GDP on healthcare — among the lowest in the world As per the ministry’s own report the government spent less than Rs 1000 per Indian in 2012-13 Of this more than 10 per cent already goes towards medical education If more scarce resources are diverted to tertiary care and medical colleges the allocation for primary and secondary healthcare may be reduced Primary healthcare is the centre of any health system — be it in India or in the United Kingdom Currently in most states primary health centres (PHCs) and referral hospitals are severely understaffed and under-equipped One PHC with a single doctor is responsible for the health of 30000 people In Brazil a comparable centre has four doctors for every 10000 people The government spends just about Rs 5 per person on medicines This is so inadequate that most PHCs do not have medicines beyond the first few months of a year Patients are asked to purchase medicine from private pharmacies incur out-of-pocket expenses at a time of illness This creates a significant financial barrier and prevents patients from accessing healthcare at the PHC If the money that would be spent on these AIIMS-like centres were used to increase the budgetary allocation for PHCs there could be more staff and medicines at these centres Patients’ trust in government facilities would be enhanced and there would be a corresponding increase in their utilisation It would be a step in the right direction if we were able to achieve universal health coverage in the near future Apart from the economics of building more AIIMS-like centres such institutions have other effects They will attract specialists from existing health centres thereby further depleting the human resource pool for district and referral hospitals Also because of their iconic stature patients may bypass the existing facilities to seek care directly at the AIIMS-like centres This is evident in the original AIIMS New Delhi where patients come from neighbouring states and crowd the outpatient and inpatient services This compromises the quality and effectiveness of the centre On the other hand if PHCs and referral hospitals are strengthened patients can be provided good quality care closer to their residence This is beneficial both for the patient and for the health services And finally it has been hypothesised that these centres will create more doctors who can then work for the country However existing evidence proves otherwise In 2009 AIIMS New Delhi was spending Rs 98 lakh on a single medical graduate More than 50 per cent of these graduates went on to serve in rural areas in the US and UK It is a fallacy to expect all graduates from these centres of excellence to work for our country On the other hand investment in the three-year BSc in rural health course would increase the probability of having clinical staff at the PHC level Chhattisgarh has shown the way and we can definitely learn from it Today for every 1000 live births more infants die in India than in countries like Nepal and Bangladesh We need to catch up with these countries and the main way to do this is to increase investment in preventive services like routine immunisation good quality antenatal care screening for cancers and promoting healthy lifestyles Our country needs to provide quality outpatient services and round-the-clock emergency services at facilities that are close to the people not only at district headquarters If India is to ensure that all people have access to quality healthcare we need to provide quality primary and secondary healthcare for all rather than tertiary healthcare for a few The writer is director? asking how could he clip the constitutional powers of the speaker to disqualify lawmakers on grounds of defection.
