Public Health means addressing the health needs of the people at a population level. India, a land of 1.4 billion people have health needs like in any other country but face huge challenges from wide range of issues ranging from demand-supply mismatch, poverty, education, inequity, basic needs including safe water, air etc. to name a few. Each state in India has different demographics, different population composition with different yardsticks of development. While some as called as 'BIMARU' states such as Jharkhand, Bihar, UP etc. others are labelled as developed such Kerala, Karnataka etc.
In the last 70 years of India's existence the issues of Public Health, have attracted least focus and attention since public health in the scheme of welfare model were limited only to a very few limited resources. Nevertheless, people have also not demanded for it. But currently in the 21st century, and especially post 2020, India is facing stiff challenges from multiple fronts on the health front and especially after the CORONA pandemic.
