The National Health Services (NHS – UK) is a government-run organisation that provides free healthcare to everyone, irrespective of their ability to afford healthcare. Even though the NHS has its fair share of shortcomings, it has been one of the best healthcare systems of the world. India dreams of replicating the model of health services in some of the developed countries, the prime example being of the NHS in the United Kingdom (UK). We have a vision to take the public expenditure of healthcare to 2.5% of GDP by 2025 and launch India's very own “NHS” model or “Modicare” – which includes the newly formed Nation Health Protection Scheme (NHPS) 2018 as a part of the Ayushman Bharat programme. There are a lot of challenges in the path to achieve this dream here in India. The population of this nation deserves a budget that focuses on healthcare more than defence.
