There has been great transition in the health care sector in India since the structural adjustment programme followed by the Indian economy. While India has made significant gains in terms of health indicators still demographic, infrastructural and epidemiological factors continues to grapple with newer challenges. The paper looks at the challenges faced by heath care segment as well as the strategies to overcome these challenges. In the coming times, health care sector is expected to grow more because of a number of factors such as growing population and economy, expanding middle class, rise of diseases, emergence of a robust pharmaceutical industry, deteriorating infrastructure, lack of insurance, etc. However, there is an urgent need for focusing on health care, stimulating investment in health care infrastructure, creation of cost effective facilities, facilitate adequate supply of manpower and a balanced approach by the regulators.
