I am his big fan and really follow him as great pioneer in restructuring Indian healthcare system
'Wealth of insights are captured in this well researched book on healthcare reforms. Rajendra has done a great job in making a compelling case of 'All for Health' for 'Health for All', and why politicians must keep health, which pays rich electoral dividends as a 'Unique Electoral Preposition', on the top of their agenda. The idea of 'Pre-emptive care, starting with children will have a lasting impact on the future of healthcare. This book is entertaining, provocative, lively, well-written and is a must read for people who are passionate to drive change in healthcare"
Senator Tom Daschle , Former Senate Majority & Minority Leader, United States of America
"Insightful' ' This book walks you through the evolution of healthcare in India from the pre-independence era till date and presents a new perspective on health and healthcare. Interesting read."
Mr. J.P. Nadda, Minister for Health & Family Welfare, Government of India.
In recent years, global policy makers have realised how much they can learn from India's leading health organisations and practitioners, with their innovation and development of new models of care. This book is a fitting accompaniment. Comprehensive and detailed, it offers interesting insights into the health of India's population and makes a passionate appeal for political priority to be given to universal health coverage and for an upstream pre-emptive approach to health.
Lord Nigel Crisp, NHS Chief Executive and Permanent Secretary of the UK Department of Health, 2000-2006
' This book is a must read for everyone interested in the Health Care System of India - and beyond. It is a very comprehensive source of up-to-date information and facts. But more importantly, it is a book rich in thought provoking ideas and reform proposals, which are of global relevance .One may agree with them or not. But in any event: India is well advised to carefully analyze the author's assessment and reforms agenda.'
Dr.Thomas Zeltner , Former Secretary of Health, Switzerland
"The book is thought provoking and inspiring. It is an excellent compendium of facts about the Indian and other Health Care Systems. It proposes to make 'healthcare ' as a Unique Electoral Proposition (UEP), which I see as an apt prescription for political leaders across the globe. Also, the author makes a strong recommendation for 'Pre-Emptive care model' based on prevention, starting with Child Health - This model has the potential to address the long term issues in healthcare. I encourage others to read and study this book for ideas on how to handle one of the premier global issues.'
Prof. George F. Smoot, Nobel Prize ( 2006 )
"Rajendra captures the essence of health reforms in his must-read treatise on global health. His emphasis on 'prevention' is spot on and critical for us to meet our global challenges without breaking the bank."
Aneesh Chopra, former Chief Technology Officer , United States of America .
"India will be well served by looking at all of the issues that relate to health and health care delivery. Simply looking at separate pieces of the problem may offer value for those pieces, but a more effective set of solutions could be developed by looking more broadly at both the challenges and the opportunities that reach across the entire scope of the health care continuum. This nicely comprehensive book is intended to be a step in that direction. It adds clear value to the debate and could be a useful tool for figuring out the best strategy for the future.'
George C. Halvorson, Former Chairman & CEO , Kaiser Permanente
It is nice to know that years of your sincere work in the field of Healthcare Reforms will fructify in the form of a well timed book. Your book is a compendium on Healthcare and I must say that this is a seminal treatise on healthcare, based on exhaustive research. The book has covered various aspects of healthcare and is akin to a data bank on Indian Healthcare ! Revealing facts and intriguing insights make it unique to its core. It's thought-provoking, inspiring and simply an incredible work. Congrats !
Mr.Sripad Naik, Minister of State ( Independent Charge) for AYUSH and Minister of State for Health & Family Welfare , Government of India .
I would like to congratulate Rajendra for making a spot-on analysis of health care challenges and making practical recommendations. The need to focus on universal health cover is more pronounced than ever before as is the need to emphasize pre-emptive care. This book is a reader's delight, especially for those who aim to solve global health care problems.
Dr. Prathap C Reddy , Founder Chairman - Apollo Hospitals Group
'I always felt that India will become the first country in the world to dissociate healthcare from affluence. Rajendra has shown why it will happen and how it will happen and to some extent, when it will happen. The book makes a profoundly interesting reading with overwhelming data to prove that, for the stability of the society, we need to develop robust healthcare system with equal participation by the government, private and NGO sectors. I strongly feel that a copy of this should be distributed to every policy maker of this country.'
Dr. Devi Shetty, Chairman - Narayana Health
