[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]India with 1.28 million people is the second most populous country in the world. Since its independence, it has made modest progress in healthcare sector especially in increasing the life expectancy and eradication of diseases like smallpox, polio, etc.

Despite the progress and with systems of healthcare, and price control being placed to address some of the challenges of the sector, a looming challenge for the healthcare domain remains the access to quality and affordable medicines for a large section of its population. There are several reasons responsible for the inadequate access to economical medicines like inefficient supply chains, lack of adequate healthcare financing and patient education, etc. These often result in problems like a high premature mortality rate, which takes a huge toll on the future of the country.

The lack of access to medicines and healthcare facilities also has direct impact on furthering the cause of goal number 3 of Sustainable Development Goals of the UN, which seeks to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages. It is thus important to understand the issues well and make necessary course corrections to ensure that the targets are set and met.

A breakfast roundtable is thus being hosted by the India Council on Competitiveness to identify the barriers and the challenges to improve access to medicines in specific and to the broader health care domain in general. The deliberation will also identify solutions for the problems and further the debate on the existing ones.
