    The current healthcare infrastructure, however, is not sufficient to meet the growing demand and according to the WHO report India needs to add 80,000 beds for the next 5 years. Change in disease profile, demographics, socio-economic mix and prices will impact healthcare delivery over the next 5 years. It is estimated that there will be a 50% increase in lifestyle diseases (cancer, cardio…) and the increase in population from 1 billion to 1.2 billion will further increase the prevalence of these diseases.
