A big thumbs up to healthcare in Union Budget 2019
A big thumbs up to healthcare in Union Budget 2019 - Mr. Rahul Paith, COO, DocOnline
“Healthcare is witnessing a massive investment uplift in the past five to ten years. Initiatives like Ayushman Bharat and other technological advancements has brought in a big relief to the people of India across all economic backgrounds.
Government is encouraging and taking initiatives to ensure last mile healthcare delivery, by creating a conducive environment for technology-led healthcare platforms. Lakhs of poor and middle-class people are benefiting from reduction in the prices of essential medicines, cardiac stents and knee implants, and availability of medicines at affordable prices through Pradhan Mantri Jan Aushadhi Kendras.
Putting more money into the semi-urban and rural economies will help people from small towns and villages too gain a big deal on the health front. Overall, am happy with the Budget presented today, and would give a thumbs up to the allocations and recommendations made.”
