Novel Health Approaches Emerging from the Covid-19 Crisis

Experiences from Maharashtra

Novel public health experiments from Maharashtra in the pandemic times, involving co-production of healthcare, interventionist regulation of private hospital rates and popular initiatives to ensure social accountability of private hospitals, demonstrate significant potentials to advance people-centred health system changes.

The COVID-19 pandemic exacerb­ated and highlighted the deep contradictions in our health systems, like never before. This was especially true in the case of Maharashtra—the Indian state that was worst-affected by COVID-19 in terms of the number of cases and deaths. Despite massive distress cau­sed to ordinary people due to health system inadequacies, this crisis also generated certain novel public responses. As we move into a post-COVID-19 situation, drawing upon experiences from Maharashtra, we will attempt to identify some approaches that demonstrate significant potentials to advance people-centred health system changes in the coming period.
