Is there any hope of improving health care services in rural India?

In India, instead of huge growth orientated policies adopted by the government, the health status of Indians, is still a cause of main concern, especially that of the rural population. About 75% of health infrastructure, medical man power and other health resources are concentrated in urban areas where 25% of the population live.
