India is one of many countries facing severe shortage of trained medical professionals—including nurses, dentists, and administrators—but especially doctors. By the most recent data, the United States has 2.672 doctors per 1,000 people, and 3.1 hospital beds per 1,000 people. India, on the other hand, has a mere 0.599 doctors and 0.9 hospital beds per 1,000 people.
Going by these numbers, India would need almost 2.4 million new doctors and over 2 million more hospital beds to reach the same proportions as the United States. The World Health Statistics say that India ranks among the lowest in this regard globally, with 0.9 beds per 1,000 population - far below the global average of 2.9 beds. India's National Health Profile 2010 says India has a current public sector availability of one bed per 2012 persons available in 12,760 government hospitals - around 0.5 beds per 1,000 populations.
AHPI proposes to address these issues for the benefit of community with Central Government and State Governments, by proposing to off load many healthcare management and logistics task to private sector.
