NITI Aayog is set to begin a series of Development Dialogues to engage experts, thought leaders and government stakeholders across key avenues of long-term social and economic development.
The first event shall be a conference on “Health Systems for A New India: Building Blocks” on November 30. The conference by NITI Aayog will feature senior government functionaries, and eminent national and international experts in the healthcare space.
The idea of a health system pertains to integrating existing and future programmes, financing, human resources and policies related to all dimensions of healthcare within the fabric of an all encompassing, inclusive, long-term, stable system.
The conference is also an attempt by NITI to begin conversations around the mandated 15 year vision document for the country as a whole.
The discussions by NITI Aayog shall include topics related to achieving standardized delivery of health across all levels of care in India’s mixed healthcare system, leveraging IT for healthcare and importantly, in a fiscally constrained environment, how can existing healthcare funds be mobilized more effectively and efficiently.
