Given that the Health Brotherhood suffered from inadequate resources and resources, including hospital physicians and facilities, the 2019-20 interim budget was silent in the health sector, leaving many people disappointed.
Expectations against Reality: ] The government had greater hopes to provide more funding for the health sector under the 2019-20 interim budget. The laconic approach to the Health Brotherhood has brought everyone into trouble, anticipating the difficulties to be expected in the coming year in terms of medical facilities and the necessary upgrading of hospital technology and facilities.
With little focus on key issues such as funding better facilities and the exclusive focus on supporting deaths from diseases such as recent encephalitis, the medical fraternity and the general public are wondering how it will be this year becomes. Social media is full of despair and questions that completely overshadow health in the interim budget for the period 2019-2020. The recipient of Padma Shri, Vishwa Hindi Samman and Dr. Ing. BC Roy National Award, dr. KK Aggarwal shared his thoughts on his Twitter account with:

Congresswoman Ibrahim Patnam's Telangana Polamoni coordinator Ramakrishna Yadav shares his views on the need for tight budgets for the health sector in 2019-20:
Over the last 5 years, the Die Government has cut the budget for the National Health Mission by 13%, leading to a massive shortage of health professionals. From # Budget2019 India expects that 3% of GDP will be spent on health care to avoid crises like Bihar, Assam, Up, and so on. #RKYadav pic.twitter.com/pmKRGWvCgz

That's what it looks like Whole out There no facts and figures were discussed in the 2019-20 interim budget. People are concerned about how this little piece of information will contribute to health policy reform in India. There was an acute shortage of facilities for medical emergencies, leading to unregistered deaths and a lack of public information and awareness of the need for sanitation in India. With a mere increase of Rs.1462bn compared to the previous year's allocation and without health insurance exemptions, there are serious public doubts about the impact this budget might have on the health sector.
For the first time you were true. The budget has not raised any problems. Above all, the budget did not pay. CAD is alarming. No reason to increase consumption. Nothing about health and education. A Kachara Budget Total

Expectations for the Budget
Before yesterday's budget allocation, several health experts came together and shared their thoughts on social media. As expected, it has called for increased healthcare expenditures on affordable health services, better infrastructure for hospitals and an acute shortage of medical staff, including doctors and nurses. Other provisions included the provision of budgetary resources for the diet of pregnant mothers and toddlers and the provision of free medicines to vulnerable groups. All these points, however, seem to be lost throughout the discussion on the allocation for the 2019-20 period.
