Sunday, April 7th is World Health Day and this year’s theme is “Universal Health Coverage: Everyone, Everywhere” that is Health for All. The day is seen as an opportunity by the organization to draw global attention to a subject of major importance to health each year.

With regards to ‘Health for All’, the Government of India launched Ayushman Bharat – National Health Protection Scheme (AB-NHPS) on September 23, 2018 as a part of National Health Policy 2017, in order to achieve the vision of Universal Health Coverage. AB-NHPS aims to provide comprehensive healthcare services to over 10 crore (100 million) poor and vulnerable families (approximately 500 million beneficiaries), accounting for roughly 40% of the nation. It is an attempt to move from sectoral and segmented approach of health service delivery to a comprehensive need-based healthcare service. This includes primary care through Health and Wellness Centres, and insurance coverage of upto INR 5 lakh (approximately USD 7,200) per year for secondary and tertiary care through the Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (PM-JAY).
