Relevance of Small Private Medical Institutions to Sustain the Health Care System in Kerala

The outstanding achievements in the health sector of Kerala amidst its low economic growth remain to be a paradox. The corroborative role of private sector in achieving this high health status cannot be sidelined. The study examines the contribution of small private medical institutions during the tenure from 1970s to 1990s when Kerala made remarkable developments in its health sector, even without any health policies. With the recent regulatory measures to tackle the challenges in the health sector, the study looks at the question of whether a state like Kerala, needs stringent regulations to ensure minimum standards and if it is the right approach to tackle the challenges.
