Allocating scarce life support in a public health emergency
India, like many developing countries, is vast with differing geographic and socioeconomic situations. We see public health emergencies on an almost continual basis. These include famines, floods, earthquakes and other natural disasters including the recent tsunami, and the recent pandemic of the swine flu. Often different emergencies are seen in different parts of the country at the same time, for example famine due to water scarcity in one part and floods in another area.
