Abstract: The present paper is an attempt to analyze health care scenario in Kerala in the neo-liberal era. Since the late 1970s a number of international scholars have held up the South Indian State of Kerala as a Model of Development. Kerala has made remarkable achievements in health almost comparable to that of even developed countries. But all the evidence we have shows that neo-liberal policies have adversely affected them. The present paper looks at these myriad issues and suggests remedial measures.
