Health Satellite Account 2017-18, Uttarakhand
The health sector has gained immense importance in the last several months since the advent of an unprecedented health crisis in the form of the COVID-19 pandemic across the world. Currently, there is a higher-than-ever need to understand the financial flows of the health expenditure through various financing schemes. This study by NCAER to prepare the State’s first Health Satellite Account (HSA) has been undertaken in this context. The study is based on the methodology delineated by the National Health Accounts – Guidelines for India, 2016, prepared by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India, which itself is based on the internationally accepted System of Health Accounts (SHA-2011).
