ABOUT THE BOOK

Current thinking in public health has moved beyond a mere recognition of biological and behavioural causes of ill-health and disease, to embrace an examination of interdisciplinary approaches between health, health policy and social, economic, environment & political context as determinants of health and health care sustainability. This shift reflects broad and complex analysis of relationship between human development and health holistically. By researching health and social inequalities, community responses and public policies can be better understood and necessary coherent policies can be designed to diminish inequalities and can result in better health care services and health outcomes. This book advocates on greater role for decentralised planning, involvement of People's Representative Institutions (PRIs), effectiveness in cooperative federalism in Centre-State relations and most importantly meaningful partnerships between 'Government and NGOs' as central to community participation and empowerment in Strengthening Health Systems and
Health Care benefits in achieving sustainability of Health Care in Rural India. Sustainability of non-governmental health care is studied in partnerships with their government
counterpart in one of the BIMARU State of Rajasthan. The study highlighted sustainability issues as the central theme of primary health care with the elaboration of case studies of NGOs actively engaged in donor assisted government health systems in the state. For analytical purpose, the overall working environment of NGOs in target community, policy support, management strategy and their capacities are studied. Mode of interdependence has been considered and analysed as implications for NGO-Government partnerships
for sustainability. The book concludes with policy responses for health care programmes to achieve sustainability in the context changing role of new public health in Rural India. This book will be of interest and benefit academic community, social science researchers, policy makers, public health professionals, health care administrators, NGOs, national and international development partners in hastening research issues in achieving 'Health for All' and 'Universal Health Coverage' using Primary Health Care.Current thinking in public health has moved beyond a mere recognition of biological and behavioural causes of ill-health and disease, to embrace an examination of interdisciplinary approaches between health, health policy and social, economic, environment & political context as determinants of health and health care sustainability.
