Keywords: Primary Healthcare, Rural India, Healthcare, Infrastructure, Government Schemes, Ayushman Bharat and National Rural Health Mission


India’s rural healthcare system plays a pivotal role in ensuring access to quality healthcare for a significant portion of the population. This study aims to shed light on the state of rural healthcare infrastructure, the effectiveness of government healthcare initiatives, and the far-reaching implications for rural communities. Rural India presents unique healthcare challenges characterized by disparities in healthcare infrastructure, limited access to medical services, and varying health outcomes. The government of India has launched several healthcare schemes and initiatives over the years, such as the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) and Ayushman Bharat, to address these challenges. Understanding the impact of these schemes and their consequences is essential to inform future healthcare strategies and policies. This study provides a holistic view of the primary healthcare infrastructure in rural India, offering insights into the effectiveness of government schemes and their implications for the health and well-being of rural populations. Its findings serve as a valuable resource for policymakers, stakeholders, and healthcare professionals working toward the improvement of rural healthcare in India.
