The Dismal State of Indian Healthcare: Can anything be done about it?

The State of Indian Welfare

Indian Healthcare is in the Doldrums currently. The recent and sadly tragic death of many Indian children at a College run hospital in the city of Gorakhpur in India has shown the dismal state of health care and education in India in sharp relief and has reopened the debate around India's weakness in providing for its citizens. In the years since its Independence, India has not been able to deliver quality public health and education to all of its citizens. A number of instances which have grabbed the headlines in the past have time and again reiterated this issue, which raises a number of concerns including why has India despite being a Democracy for so long not been able to deliver quality health care?, and why has the benefit of economic growth not trickled down to the people who need it the most, the lowest wage earners?

Why Indians choose to Immigrate to Canada

As a contrast to the Indian welfare system, the Canadian welfare system promises Quality Healthcare to all those who need it. The taxes paid by residents of Canada are efficiently utilized to provide quality sanitation, education and health care to all, with no discrimination. As someone who Immigrates To Canada, you will be assured of the same level of care that anyone can get in spite of your level of income. This is made possible by the Canada Health Act which was launched in 1984. The health care act makes sure all permanent residents and citizens of Canada can get access to the health care system which is publicly funded. According to the norms of the act, any Permanent Resident or citizen in Canada can get free medical check-ups and consultations about any health concerns. They can also get access to specialists and undergo surgeries at less or no cost. The cost is borne by the government through the medium of income tax in all provinces in Canada except British Columbia, which asks its residents to pay a fixed monthly premium, which is waived for low-income earners. No wonder then that many Indians are exploring the option of immigrating to Countries like Canada.

The benefits of Immigration to Australia

Residents of Australia have access to one of the Best health care systems in the world. The health care system in Australia can be complex and a bit difficult to navigate, especially for those who newly immigrate to Australia. The health care system has multiple categories including public and private insurance and many different service providers. The Funds for health care in Australia are mostly provided by federal and state governments. As someone who Immigrates to Australia you can choose whether you want to opt for public insurance wherein you get health care for free, but have to be treated by hospitals and Doctors mandated by the government or private insurance where you pay a monthly premium to a private organization and can choose the Doctor who best treats you.

Even in education, Australia has one of the best education systems in the world. Students who have completed their primary education in Australia have a better chance of getting into and copying at the top universities in the world. Moreover, the cost of education at the university level is much less for students who are Permanent residents of Australia as compared to overseas students It is no surprise, therefore, that a number of Indians who can afford it are choosing to immigrate to countries like Canada and Australia to give themselves and their families a better lifestyle.
