The present study examined the spatial growth of public and registered private health facilities in selected cities of Maharashtra.

We found clusters of private hospitals in the city centres, with the urban poor completely excluded. The study highlights an urgent need for a norm for location / distribution of private hospitals within the city to facilitate a more equitable distribution of health services. Download full report
