PRIVATE hospitals in the city, like the government hospitals, are not in a good shape either for treating swine flu patients as most do not have any provision to handle such cases, and the ones which do can hardly treat half a dozen H1N1 patients at a time. The recent remarkable growth of the private health sector in India has come at a time when public spending on health care at 0.9% of gross domestic product (GDP) is among the lowest in the world and ahead of only five countries—Burundi, Myanmar, Pakistan, Sudan, and Cambodia. This proportion has fallen from an already low 1.3% of GDP in 1991 when the neoliberal economic reforms began.
