    Private efforts, public service

    I n a country where 22 per cent citizens and half the rural population are below the poverty line, the healthcare needs for such a massive segment cannot be ignored. We all know how miserably the government's healthcare infrastruc-ture and machinery have failed to address the need. And it was high time that private healthcare players stepped in to correct the skewed distribution of healthcare service, not just in vil-lages but in smaller towns as well.

    And thats why the epochal effort made by Kolkata-based Glocal Healthcare counts. Founded by two former civil servants, the organisation is providing decent healthcare to the have-nots, that too in a corporate set-up. Having tested success with its unique business model with five hospitals in West Bengal,

    Glocal is now raring to grow. It is setting up 50 more hospitals that would take the groups

    bed strength to 5,500 beds. Glocals story is not just an fine ex-ample in successful social entrepreneurship, but also a study in management. It is a reference point for building and operating a low-cost healthcare model that is sustainable and profitable in

    the long run. However, much of Glocals success can be attributed to the

    success of RSBY scheme. So, while applauding Glocal's efforts,

    lets not forget to give credit to Anil Swarup, a maverick civil servant, under whose aegis RSBY has provided more than 110

    million people with heavily subsidised health insurance.
