India: No 1 importer of arms in the world

The State of Healthcare in India

The state of Indian healthcare is explained by Dr. Devi Prasad Shetty, Chairman, Narayana Hrudayalaya in an interview to Businessindia magazine 5 Mar 2012.

“Indians are three times more prone to heart diseases than Europeans. Heart attack is the No.1 killer here. We need to do 2.5 million heart surgeries (in a year) and we do just 90,000. India produces just 80 cardiologists a year against 800 in the US. India has a shortage of one million doctors and two million nurses. About 70 per cent of our doctors live in urban India, whereas 70 per cent of our citizens live in rural India. If India sets up 100 medical colleges a year for the next five years, we may address shortage issues by 2025.”
