The covid pandemic put a spotlight on an often-neglected component of India’s health system: urban public health and healthcare. The crowding in our cities makes them natural targets, but our urban health problem runs deeper.
In the past, governments have focused on rural health, and rightly so. Expenditures under the National Health Mission (NHM), India’s primary public health and healthcare delivery vehicle, make this apparent. Union government expenditure on urban areas was ₹850 crore in 2019-20, compared to nearly ₹30,000 crore for rural. However, with rapid urban population growth, a lack of government primary and preventive health infrastructure in urban India poses a challenge. Against a norm-based target of 9,072 urban primary health centres (UPHCs), only 5,190 are operational. Further, most states do not have urban sub-centres (SCs), people’s first point of access for healthcare services. There are only 3,000 urban SCs compared to over 150,000 in rural areas.

Agencies
The 15th FC has taken several progressive first steps to support the nature of urbanisation taking place in the country.
The 15th Finance Commission (FC) Report for 2021-26 recognises urbanisation as an important engine of national economic growth and poverty reduction and emphasises the need for meeting the future challenges of spatial urban expansion into the metropolitan peripheries and in planned new cities. But it is also riddled with serious shortcomings that need to be highlighted.

In each of the first four years, a borrowing additionality of 0.5% of SDP is on offer, conditional on power-sector reform.
