Blurb/Shorttext:
A critical examination of healthcare delivery system unfolds the fact that while ‘Healthcare for All’ has become the panacea of human development, inequalities in access to health services have become more pronounced than before. Concomitantly, higher quality and improved standards of medical care while enhancing life-chances of human specious, have escalated the medical divide between the elite and the masses in acquiring quality health services due to skewed diffusion of medical infrastructure in diverse regions across space. Premised on the right based approach to capture the travel of villagers from rural and tribal areas to urban centers as an ethno strategy to access pertinent treatment, this book is a pioneering contribution to the discourse of medical sociology for redirecting the focus on the question of access to health care to different social categories especially the under privileged and the downtroddens in human society. Sociologist, medical professionals, health administrators, policy makers, researchers, donor agencies, development practitioner and so on would academically and professionally benefit from this book.
