Political problems need political solutions
Political problems need political solutions, but governments in India have done precious little for providing health care for the common man. They make grandiose plans for a primary health centre in each village, but typically these PHCs have no medicines or supplies, because they have been siphoned off. They build expensive super specialty hospitals in cities, but most of these just end up as a palace of diseases, while the poor continue to die without food and shelter.
