The health care sector in India has struggled for long with multiple health indicators, as well as high maternal mortality rate (MMR), high infant mortality rate (IMR) and low life expectancy rates. However, matters have drastically modified over the years and therefore the health care sector is quickly conducive to each employment likewise as revenue. It's expected to become older to Rs. 1,230,800 large extent by 2020 from Rs. 669,500 large extent in 2015 at a Compound Annual Rate of Growth (CAGR) of thirteen per cent. what is more, the health expenditure is probably going to continue growing preponderantly because of the twin malady burden, rising health awareness, increasing income and growing population.
