Indu Bhushan, CEO, Ayushman Bharat inaugurated 4th VOH International Conference on Viable Healthcare for all at MFI 2019. Speaking at MFI, the Chief Guest for the occasion, Bhusan said, “For the first time in the history of independent India, health sector has become a political commitment. Government of India has shown its commitment towards strengthening the healthcare eco-system in the country by increasing the investments to 2.5 per cent. Ayushman Bharat is one of the many initiatives in the whole scheme. Ayushman Bharat has received tremendous response in the initial phase. We have completed 150 days and have issued two crore cards. We will be completing five months tomorrow. We are issuing four to five lakh cards every day. 15000 hospitals have joined the movement, 15 per cent of these are private hospitals. The future of this movement lies in a good integration between the private and public healthcare entities. I urge all entities to not sit on the fence and wait for the change. Join in and make the change happen.”

Speaking at MFI as the Guest of Honour, Dr Anil Kohli, Past President, Dental Council of India, Consultant to President of India said, “Our Prime Minister’s vision of Ayushman Bharat is a great step in achieving the World Health Organisation’s mission to ensure Universal Healthcare. But the biggest question is that when we talk about health for all, how can we ensure the accessibility in one of world’s largest populated country. India need to focus on public private partnership so as to improve the Healthcare system and support our ambitious dream of Ayushman Bharat.”

Addressing the healthcare industry in a key note message, Anupriya Patel, Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare, Government of India stated, “Healthcare has become one of the India’s largest sectors-both in terms of revenues and employment. In the rapidly changing healthcare environment, it is very important for the suppliers of medical and hospital equipments, surgical diagnostics instruments and rehabilitation to find a common platform to interact with each other and with members of the healthcare delivery industry. Building these platforms of partnership is essential for creating a strong backbone for the healthcare sector in the country to reach international standards rapidly.”
