The rise of populism in policy making is being analyzed frequently during last couple of decades. Similar to the features of populism arguments, Indian health policies are also characterized with leftist and rightist ideologies. In order to target the health inequity in India, the government is increasingly adopting a public-private-partnership model. Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham has planned to offer a Management Development Program (MDP), that will be offered in two chapters. Each Chapter will deliver separate MDPs on distinct issues related to healthcare market and health policies in India.

Chapter-1 will provide insights on penetration of privatization of Indian healthcare, and its effectiveness in achieving universal health coverage and attaining efficiency in healthcare market. We would also discuss the patterns in Indian health policy making, its successes and challenges in detail. The Indian healthcare market remains complex.  In this chapter we will try to academically highlight upon the successes and failures of Indian health policies, and the intervention of private players in achieving universal health coverage in India. Hence, this lecture series will be delivered from a multi-disciplinary approach.
