India's Health Care System (ARCHIVE)

August 27, 2009 archived broadcast.
In India, health care is officially government financed and government run. However, actually accessing publicly provided health care is another matter. There is a severe lack of funding by the government. People, including the poor, often have to pay out of pocket and quite a lot to get any access to health care. India spends $109 annually per person (vs. $7,290 in the U.S.). India spends 4.9% of GDP (vs. 16% of GDP in the U.S.) on health care.
