Where you stand on the Indian social ladder shapes to a large degree what kind of healthcare you receive. India has a countrywide network of government-funded primary health centers and hospitals, but staffing, medicines and resources vary widely. The Planning Commission of India found that in government-run health centers this year, 45% of gynecologist posts and 53% of pediatric posts went unfilled, and that salaries for government doctors are a fraction of those at new private hospitals.
