Niti Aayog will soon come up with a report on health system for India, highlighting the challenges impacting the sector. The report titled New India: Building Blocks – Potential Pathways to Reforms is a synthesis of all the discussions and efforts initiated at the national-level workshop held last year.

NITI Aayog vice chairman Rajiv Kumar will release the report on Monday in the presence of Bill Gates, co-chairman of Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and representatives from national and international academia.

The report reveals India’s health system as a story of multiple fragmentations at the level of payers and risk pools, healthcare services and at digital backbone running it, the Aayog said on Friday

The report integrates viewpoints on the concerted efforts required for strengthening the existing fractured health system to meet the challenges that lie ahead of the nation.

The report is based on the data collected and provided by ACCESS Health International for the public sector and by PWC India for private sector.

NITI Aayog aims to facilitate multi-sectoral and stakeholder conversations on a systemic approach to reforming healthcare in India, looking at interlinked changes across the multiple building blocks of its health system.
