An Analysis of Health Expenditure in Assam in Recent Decades

Dr Parag Dutta

India is far behind than other developed countries in terms of health care facilities. There has been growing concern in India in recent decades regarding poor health care facilities particularly in poor states. It is widely acknowledged that health is an important component of human development. The low level of public spending and resulting poor quality of preventive care and poor health facilities is a major concern for the state of Assam. The recent Make in India programme of the Government of India tries to attain inclusive growth and development by including all regions of the country. As Heath care expenditure is a key determinant in overall development of the country, it is necessary to examine the health care expenditure of the poor states such as Assam. Based on Secondary data, this paper is an attempt to analyse the expenditure of the Government of Assam on health in recent decades. A time series regression analysis has been carried out to examine the relative expenditure of the state on Health by considering the variables such as GSDP and expenditure on health care. It has been found from the time series regression that the growth of health expenditure of the state is much lower than growth of GSDP.
