Prisvärd högkvalitativ sjukvård i Indien (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

Access to affordable high-quality health care solutions is a global challenge, especially

in emerging markets where health care systems are the most resource constrained. The

socio-economic benefits of investing in health care are considerable, especially in terms

of improvement of life quality and economic development. This creates a strong

demand for efficient health care delivery models with good health outcomes. In

particular, health programs targeting children in their formative years can have a longlasting

effect on the children’s and their families’ lives. In India, which has one of the

highest burdens of disease in the world, many states lack adequate school health

programs. To address this need, the NICE Foundation has developed a school health

program that provides free health care to over 200,000 children. The NICE Foundation

has experienced a great interest in their school health model and thus aims to expand

their operations. This study analyses the characteristics of the school health program in

order to identify future opportunities and to provide strategic advice for the expansion of

the NICE Foundation School Health Program.

Abstract [sv]

Tillgång till prisvärd och högkvalitativ sjukvård är en global utmaning, i synnerhet i tillväxtländer där sjukvårdssystemen  är mycket  resursbegränsade.  De socio-ekonomiska  fördelarna  av att investera  i sjukvård  är avsevärda,  med förbättrad  livskvalitet  och ekonomisk  utveckling  som följd.  Det  finns  därför  en  stor  efterfrågan  på  effektiva  hälsomodeller  som  renderar  goda hälsoresultat.   Särskilt  hälsoprogram   som  är  inriktade  på  barn  i  deras  formativa  år  har dokumenterats ge långtgående positiva effekter för individerna och samhället. I Indien, som har en  av  de  högsta  nivåerna   av  sjukdomsbörda   i  världen,   saknar  många  av  delstaterna skolhälsoprogram.   För   att   addressera   detta   behov   har   NICE   Foundation   utvecklat   ett skolhälsoprogram   som  i  nuläget  erbjuder  gratis  sjukvård  för  över  200  000  barn.  NICE Foundation  skolhälsomodell  har  fått  mycket  positiv  respons  och  organisationen  ämnar  att expandera  programmet.  Denna  studie  analyserar  NICE  Foundation  skolhälsomodell  för  att identifiera framtida möjligheter samt för att tillhandahålla strategiska råd för expansion.
