ministry has asked the All India Institute of Medical Sciences New Delhi to review its user charges that is money charged from patients for OPD registration lab tests room and bed rentals etc The institute administration has already convened a meeting to work on the logistics of the proposal It was said that the user charges at AIIMS were last reviewed 20 years ago and since then its expenditure has grown many fold Therefore it was essential to revise these charges — a clear indicator that revision implied an imminent increase in charges This recommendation stands to affect millions of poor Indians who look towards AIIMS as a last resort Unfortunately the model of development such measures promote is far from people-centric In recent times successive elected governments have acted more in favour of private players than in the interest of public enterprises We have seen this “corporate connivance” of the state in many sectors including education roadways telecom even in health The move is against welfare economics and should worry us as much as the proposed opening up of a separate registration counter at the AIIMS for “VIP” patients; a move that had to be scrapped in face of faculty opposition In the absence of a universal institutional arrangement to pay for patients’ health needs (medical insurance for example) low charges are the only respite for the poor For an average Indian it is not easy to reach a healthcare delivery point more so in rural hinterlands Besides quality accessibility and affordability of healthcare biases of gender caste illiteracy and economic deficiency play a pivotal role in healthcare delivery Despite free treatment at government hospitals more than 75 per cent of healthcare in India is through private players It is therefore essential for policymakers to consider that those who do make it to a government healthcare provider are either exempted or minimally charged This will facilitate the flow of patients to a government healthcare set-up like the AIIMS and will hopefully be a factor in reducing the patient “leak” into expensive private set-ups An elected government should promote its services (at least concerning health and education) among those who have elected it to power This opens up government systems to critical appraisal which in turn will lead to the betterment of these services The propagandists of increasing user charges make a simple argument: You pay more you get more The issue is not so simple The world over contribution of user charges towards improving the healthcare delivery system is negligible if any In fact studies from India have shown that increasing user charges within the government healthcare set-up has reduced the utilisation of the health services at least two-fold From amongst all government healthcare set-ups in the country the AIIMS enjoys the most stocky budget and an increase in user charges will only add a minuscule amount of profit while taking away a significant chunk of patients This is no less than actual denial of tertiary world-class healthcare services to the masses Before levying higher user charges the government should audit the utilisation of resources (and money) to large hospitals like the AIIMS It is possible that the amount unutilised might be equal to or less than the user charges it proposes to impose A more humane approach would be to further reduce/exempt user charges as has been shown in a number of studies from low and middle-income countries Cutting subsidies to private enterprises like health insurers could be a way of preventing the extra burden on the end user An actual increase in the annual health budget by the government will go a long way in preventing the burden of charges to be passed on to its citizens The government should realise that prioritising health within the country is the most important economic method to prevent disease and promote health The writer is professor department of

the Pak-Afghan border are on the rise again (File Photo) Related News American drone attacks on the Pak-Afghan border are on the rise again Since October counted together with ground attacks 70 strikes were reported inside Afghanistan near the Pakistan border In the last week of October 30 people were killed Pakistan doesn’t like these attacks when they trespass on its territory and cause collateral damage Despite that it is difficult to ignore that they get rid of some of the most dreaded killers of Pakistani citizens inside Pakistan At times people are compelled to conjecture that Pakistan actually “requests” the strikes In October Omar Khalid Khorasani chief of Jamaat-ul-Ahrar (JuA) an offshoot of the Pakistani Taliban was probably killed by a drone inside Afghanistan News of his surviving the attack though ran parallel to the news of his death Khorasani was the mastermind of the attack on the Army Public School in Peshawar in 2014 that killed 144 students and staff members belonging to families connected to the army The savagery of the Peshawar attack had sent Pakistan into a collective trauma which was hardly assuaged by the hanging of the men who had facilitated it But once in Afghanistan Khorasani was out of Pakistan’s reach Qari Saifullah Akhtar reported killed along with Khorasani was named by Benazir Bhutto as one of the suspects in the plot she feared was set to assassinate her As the leader of the Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami suspected of being involved in her killing he was released in early December 2010 and has finally been “droned” He was closely linked to Ilyas Kashmiri the pampered Kashmir jihadi who joined al Qaeda and carried out the most dreadful attack on the Karachi naval base in May 2011 Kashmiri too was killed by an American drone in June 2011 Chief of Pakistani Taliban Baitullah Mehsud who engineered the assassination of Benazir Bhutto in December 2007 was killed by a drone in August 2009 (In 2017 Pakistan actually acquitted the group of men he had enlisted for the purpose) The most wanted terrorist chief of the Pakistani Taliban Hakimullah Mehsud became the next victim of the American drones despite Pakistan’s protests in November 2013 after he had captured and personally executed two ex-ISI officers Khalid Khwaja and Colonel Sultan Amir Tarar It is amazing how the Americans have been steadily killing chiefs of the Pakistani Taliban with their drone attacks instead of the Pakistan army which should have done the job through ground operations Nek Muhammad was the first chief to be droned in 2004 some say on request from the Pakistan army Brigadier (retired) Shaukat Qadir an outspoken ex-chief of an Islamabad think-tank dropped a bombshell in 2013 by telling The Friday Times (July 19 2013) that army chiefs were too scared of a Taliban backlash to admit that they were asking America for the drone attacks The man Pakistan should have killed was the arch-terrorist Osama bin Laden who was living with his wives in a big house in Abbottabad near the place where the Pakistani army officers are trained He was finally killed by American commandos in 2011 Qadir revealed: General Ashfaq Kayani was scared of the national al Qaeda-driven Urdu narrative and decided to hide the truth just as he had in the case of the drones “Osama bin Laden’s presence in Abbottabad was tracked by the army but ironically it was not in a position to claim the credit” Oddly when the Americans killed him General Kayani got on the right side of the terrorists by denouncing America while America responded with a soft touch by “absolving” General Kayani of not knowing about bin Laden’s whereabouts Taking on Islamic warriors whom it considered soldiers of God — but who thrive on killing Pakistanis — was a predicament for Pakistan The army thought of parleying with them but couldn’t manage a position of strength from where to start It feared a backlash in the hinterland because of the outreach of Taliban’s Islamic proselytisation from South Punjab to Karachi The terrorists it faced were considered by many to be purveyors of an ideology superior to the one expressed in Pakistan’s constitution This was persuasively explained by al Qaeda’s current leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in The Morning and the Lamp — translated from Arabic into Urdu by the madrasas of Pakistan in silent protest
