Health Care for Human Beings


Alam, S. M., Economic Review


Health care is fully concerned with the analysis of inputs such as expenditure and employment and an appraisal of their impact on that desired outcome - the health of society. In a world of scarce resources, it is necessary to ensure that these resources are used efficiently-that the cost of producing care and the health is minimized and the benefits are maximized. In the present world's scenario, the evaluation of health care is seriously deficient. Health care needs proper education of masses, income, wealth, investment by the concerned quarters, proper nutrition, honesty, fear of Allah, fair mind, etiquettes, manners, fulfillment of promise, punctuality of time, truth, devotion, zeal and enthusiasm for serving others, not greedy for money and if anyone posses these superior qualities then there will be no health care problems even with minimum expenditure in anywhere of the world.

The health is a basic human right which should be processed honestly. The life saving profession of health service has been fraught with the inhumane commercial motives. The healthcare system in the country is plagued with numerous problems which are caused by factors like scarcity of resources, inefficiency and lack of health infrastructure and accessibility. Some of the specific reasons are low spending in health sector, access to health service, ineffective delivery of services, improper utilization of funds, illiteracy, inadequate water supplies and sanitation, poverty, lack of resource, corruption, incidence of non-communicable diseases, high fertility levels and more in rural areas. Pakistan's overall population growth rate is much higher than elsewhere in South Asia (1.9% per year).

Pakistan's health sectors with regard to health funding and sanitation infrastructures are generally poor, particularly in rural areas. According to one report about 19% of the population is malnourished and 30% of children under age of five are malnourished. Due to improper utilization of funds and lack of attention by the authorities, infectious and fatal diseases are rampant throughout the country. Also because of unhealthy sanitary conditions and wide spread contaminations. Thus, in the present days of high dearness after food items, the drug is the most wanted commodity consuming 20 to 30% of every household budget.
