TAKING HEALTH AND HYGIENE TO DOORSTEPS OF THE VULNERABLe

The coronavirus pandemic has affected the lives of each and every one on the planet. For some, their day to day lives have been impacted. On the other hand, millions of people have been pushed into poverty.

Since its onset, millions of people have been deprived of food, necessary medicines, shelter, and care. Inequality in the health sector in India has remained a major concern and needs the immediate attention of all stakeholders. The pandemic has pushed India backwards in terms of accessibility and affordability.

The situation has resulted in increased inequalities between different sections of society. On the one hand, there are few who have enough money to acquire resources by any means without burning a hole in their pocket. Then, there are middle-class people who have exhausted all their savings in getting healthcare for their family members. And then there are others who simply do not have the option to go out of the way financially. These are those sections of society who survive on a hand-to-mouth subsistence. They are entirely dependent on the government’s healthcare infrastructure and do not have any spare cash for out of pocket medical expenses.
