Public Healthcare Infrastructure in Tribal India: A Critical Review

Abstract

The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were to be achieved by 2015, however, access to healthcare services in rural areas, especially the tribal regions of the country, continues to be one of the major problems of healthcare delivery in India. Government of India and the state governments have initiated several healthcare schemes and incrementally developed health care infrastructure since Independence, but there is still a huge deficiency in improving rural and tribal health infrastructure. Against this backdrop, this paper aims to critically review and discuss the inadequate rural health infrastructure and personnel in India with a focus on Tribal areas in detail. The data for this paper has been drawn from the Rural Health Statistics (RHS) and Census Reports of Government of India.
