India Spends Rs. 3 Per Day On Each Indian’s Health

India spends Rs 1,112 on public health per capita every year – i.e. less than the cost of a single consultation at the country’s top private hospitals–or roughly the cost of a pizza at many hotels.

That comes to Rs 93 per month or Rs 3 per day.

India’s public health expenditure is amongst the lowest in the world, lower than most low-income countries which spend 1.4% of their GDP on health, according to the National Health Profile, 2018, released by union minister for health and family welfare, J P Nadda, on June 19, 2018.
