Our hospital More Definitions of General treatment

General treatment means treatment (including provision of goods and services) that is intended to manage or prevent a disease, injury or condition and is not “hospital treatment”.

The healthcare delivery in India is carried out through a network of primary, secondary and tertiary care centers. Primary health care caters to nearly 70% of the population and is concentrated on the rural, hilly and tribal areas of the country. As per the Alma-Ata declaration of 1978, appropriate treatment of commonly occurring diseases and injuries and provision of essential drugs are the two vital components of primary healthcare concept.

Essential medicines are those that satisfy the priority health needs of a population. They are selected with due regard to public health relevance, evidence on efficacy and safety and comparative cost effectiveness. The implementation of the concept of essential medicines is intended to be flexible and adaptable to specific situations and provision of these essential medicines has been recognized as an important responsibility of the country.[13] While on one hand, provision of essential medicines has its own demands and challenges, the other major challenge is the rationale behind the use of these essential medicines. In order to achieve this, STGs have been formulated to minimize the erroneous use of these essential medicines.
