Cost of hospitalisation for non-communicable diseases in India: are we pro-poor?

This MSF study analyses nationwide representative data collected by the National Sample Survey Organisation with an aim to estimate out-of-pocket (OOP) expenditure due to hospitalisation from NCDs in India. The study also analyses its impact on households in the country. Basis in-depth research it was concluded that strengthening of public health facilities is required at a community level for the prevention, control and management of NCDs. Promotion of generic medicines, better availability of essential drugs and possible subsidisation for the poorest quintile will be measures to consider, reducing OOP expenditure in public-sector facilities.
