This volume brings together world's leading experts to analyse the challenges facing survival and health in India and what it would take to address them. It aims to enhance the significance of health in the context of India's public policy, with discussions on demographic, economic, moral and legal arguments for prioritization of health in India. It also talks about the burden of disease and disability, factors responsible for the current status of health-ranging from the economic, social, spatial and the environmental to the more immediate health sector determinants and resources-and the state of health sector regulation in the country. This is the first comprehensive analytical reference on India's health sector. The policymakers and other stakeholders in India's health sector, scholars, students, media, as well as lay readers would find it very useful.
