According to the bank website, "The health sector in India is in a stage of transition. This presents both an opportunity and a challenge given the increasing demand for quality health services exacerbated by changing disease patterns. Health being under the state list of the constitution of India, the differential capabilities of the states to implement healthcare delivery becomes critical. Within this context and given our previous and continued engagement with the health sector, it is crucial that a strategic approach be adopted for expanding health sector engagement in India. This would draw upon the vision laid out in Strategy 2030 and align increased engagement identifying key areas of support including investment needs. It would also assess, document and support innovative practices, recognizing that India might need organic solutions developed which are scalable, yet draw from best practices."

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
