Functioning primary health facilities first step towards healthcare reform

Indian civil services select and train senior bureaucrats who lead the Indian government. India currently has several IAS and IFS officers with MBBS training. I propose the Government of India create an Indian Health Service (IHS) Branch. India will need 742 “IHS” officers, one per district, who are ranked equal to the IAS officers to coordinate the public health system of the district. By creating a civil service branch to manage healthcare centers and increasing medical and nursing colleges to one per district, a large workforce could be made available to staff these facilities adequately.
