Health Care in India

India is supposed to be one of the fastest growing economy in the world. How does the growing economy help the poor in India? How it affects the health care situation especially for the poor?
An article bringing light into the true facts regarding the health care situation in rural India is there in The Hindu. The village Dhasai is only 150 kms away from India's commercial capital Mumbai.
Such villages are not an exception but the rule in rural India. Still our Government spends abysmally low amounts for health care, less than 2 percent of GDP.

So much political and media attention is there on the Indo-US nuclear deal.Will our politicians ever look seriously at this question of providing affordable and easily accessible health care facilities for all Indians?
