Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee allocated Rs 22,300 crore for the health sector in his 2010-11 budget, an increase of over Rs 2,700 crore over the previous fiscal year. The Minister said the country was set to conduct a national health survey next fiscal and this would benefit in more than one way. "The findings of the survey should be of immense benefit to major public health initiatives, particularly the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM), which has successfully addressed the gaps in the delivery of critical health services in rural areas," he said.
