India, since Independence, has achieved modest success when it comes to some aspects of public health, but much remains to be done for the future.
At the time of Independence, the life expectancy at birth for an individual in India was 32 years, it has more than doubled to 66 years in 2013. Similarly, the infant mortality rate (IMR or the number of babies who die before their first birthday in a given year per 1,000 live births in that year) has gone down from 164 in early 1950s to 40 in 2013.
