India's Healthcare Has Improved Over The Years But It Ranks Below Bangladesh And Sri Lanka: Study

India ranks below Lanka, Bangladesh on healthcare index

For instance, China is far ahead of India, ranking at 82 with a score of 74 on the index. Pakistan is below India with 43.1 points. Though India is one of the most preferred destination for Medical Tour/Holiday by the westerners for its affordable treatment, when it comes to its own index, it lags behind its neighbours namely China, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Sri Lanka.

The countries that rank above India have a wide variation in healthcare access and quality. Sri Lanka has scored 73 on the index, whereas Brazil and Bangladesh have score 65 and 52, respectively.

According to the report, which assessed and ranked the quality of healthcare and the extent to which the goals were met, the countries were analysed for a period of 25 years between 1990 and 2015.

An interesting point which the study highlights is that even among countries with similar development levels, there was a huge difference in healthcare access and quality.

Overall, the results are a warning sign that heightened healthcare access and quality is not an inevitable product of increased development.
