Experts shared their views on how to improve the health care services all over the globe and how it can be made accessible. According to Priya Balasubramaniam who is the senior health scientists of the public in India, it should be acknowledged that there is nothing in this world that will resemble the perfect model for healthcare systems. Even Thailand and Sri Lanka have different methods utilized but both are commendable when it comes to progress in the healthcare industry. One should keep in mind that though the best health insurance in Thailand is available, the improvement of their systems can be attributed to consistent investment in PHC or Primary Health Care. India, on the other hand, focuses more on UHC or Universal Health Care by tapping both public and private sectors in the industry.
According to the director of UCL Centre for Global Health Economics in London, Jolene Skordis, the ideal healthcare system should have the same provider for either the rich or poor clients. It has always been deemed that national service is dedicated to the poor while private sector is for those who are able to afford. When this differentiation is applied, quality is no longer the priority. High quality healthcare system can be guaranteed if the same provider caters to the rich and poor because everyone who is able to vote will be able to have a say on the matter of quality in the service they are given.
The resident coordinator to Kenya in the United Nations, Siddharth Chatterjee, said that the governments should take time to consider the partnership between public and private sector. This is the perfect time to test recent models since the old one is clearly not cutting it. This mechanism will make use of blended service thus there will be more space for insurance as well as the government will be able to focus on providing universal insurance for everyone in the country.
Cicely Thomas who is a senior programme office working for Results for Development shared that every government should learn from those countries that are obviously going the right path. As one of the top tourists destination in the world, we know that the best health insurance in Thailand exists while its entire healthcare system continues to improve over the years.
