Impact of COVID-19 on the Indian Healthcare Sector

Over the last few decades, India has made significant advancements in the way healthcare is delivered in the country. In terms of employment and revenue, it has been one of the largest sectors and is growing at a brisk pace. Healthcare in India is delivered mainly either by public or private providers.

With the COVID-19 pandemic testing even the more developed healthcare systems globally, the foundations of India’s healthcare system have naturally also been shaken. The overall response to the pandemic witnessed both the private and government sector working in tandem.

The biggest health emergencies of our times have not just laid bare the myriad challenges and gaps in our health system but also highlighted the importance of investing in ‘well-being’ at both personal and system levels. It has ushered in an era of digital and technological innovations and advancements that is expected to help communities fulfil those requirements at a much faster pace.
