Today, we are an enormous country of 1.3 billion people, who are as diverse as they come and spread across the length and breadth of the country; pose an enormous challenge to the health care system1. This brings into focus, the WHO theme for 2018, which calls for ‘Universal Health Coverage- Everyone, everywhere’. Multiple relentless efforts to bridge this gap in health care provision to the most needy and lower decile of the Indian population have been made. Ayushman Bharat, is one such program. Launched in 2018, Ayushman Bharat (AB) is an attempt to move from a selective approach to health care to deliver comprehensive range of services spanning preventive, promotive, curative, rehabilitative and palliative care. It aims to provide these services in the remotest and the most neglected corners of India (through upgradation of PHCs and SHCs), to crowded urban spaces (through UPHCs), bringing to fore its aim of Universal coverage.
