Despite being a significant player in the delivery of health services, the private sector has been largely overlooked by Indian policy-makers while formulating policies for achieving the goal of "health for all". This paper attempts to analyze the current characteristics and structure of the private sector in health services, its strengths and weaknesses and proposes options for a coherent framework of policy and action to meet the national health objectives.

From the Paper:

"The State's role has been actively debated, particularly in the context of globalisation and economic liberalization in India. One school of thought argues that excessive State intervention has stifled private initiative, creating a burgeoning bureaucracy and fiscal imbalances. With inefficiency and corruption eroding public confidence, leading commentators have suggested limiting the State's role to essential functions like Defence, Law and Order and External Relations. "
