Reforming Health Care for All Individuals

Reforming Health Care

A book by Dr. Arif Azad called Patient Pakistan: Reforming and Fixing Health Care for All in the 21st Century is very beneficial in the sense that it helps people understand the reason why healthcare system is not flourishing in Pakistan and how doctors are not the only ones to be blamed.

The key players of this system are the health officials or the administrators, who play their roles in deciding rules and policies affecting various things such as the prices of medicines, working hours of the medical community and many other things. Furthermore, pharmaceutical companies and drug regulatory bodies are also a part of this system.

Non-governmental organizations also have a role to play. Although the NGOs have been fulfilling their jobs in providing medical services but they too need to step up their game in the policy side. Coming to the international donors, they might be very enthusiastic with their help but they also have different priorities. The media can play a great role in raising awareness but it is an underused platform. The most important part of this system is the patients or people who need to work on their own dietary habits. There are many other actors as well, and almost all of them are not controlled by the doctors.

Doctor Azad has a lot of expectations from the government for delivering on the issue of health care. According to him, public health is the responsibility of the public and is strongly against the concept of privatization. In his book, he has shared his opinion on the proper regulation of the medicine industry, his wariness of the private-public partnerships, and the lessons that we can learn from the insurance schemes that are operational in other countries.
