With an aim to avert a possible dengue-chikungunya crisis in the Capital, the Delhi government on Friday instructed all hospitals and nursing homes to increase their bed capacity by up to 20 per cent for the next six months. So far, Delhi has witnessed 50 cases of dengue and 105 cases of chikungunya. By this month in 2016, however, only five cases of dengue and not a single case of chikungunya were reported. "All hospitals, including private and government, and the nursing homes have been asked to increase the bed capacity by up to 20 per cent for six months, so that there is no shortage of beds. No patient has to be turned away due to unavailability of beds," Delhi Heath Minister Satyendar Jain said.

Low healthcare spend worrying 23.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
The National Health Policy 2017 was a much-needed step to address the healthcare situation in the country. However, it has taken too long for a country with such a high population and it should have been accorded priority much before. It is important that in India, a country of 1.2 billion-plus people with a robust democracy and economy, the health of its people is accorded priority in the manner that it truly deserves.
