The book undertakes a critical examination of health service development in India and provides an explanation of its underdevelopment. It analyzes the trajectory of health services development in India and dissects the roles of various actors which shape that process viz. the State, civil society, and the people. It helps you to arrive at a less ambiguous analytical paradigm regarding a complex scenario discernible in a country like India where diversities across regions and states make it difficult to advance a pan Indian framework, strategy, or theory.
