They expressed a need to balance altruism with entrepreneurship, and were disappointed when the scheme chiiranjeevi not yield an increase in new patients, or provide sufficient remuneration for complicated deliveries. Under these circumstances, where the state has a large and growing private health sector, a poorly functioning government sector, and a substantial proportion of the population eligible for social welfare programmes, an innovative scheme to co-opt the private sector to provide delivery care and access to emergency care seemed like a reasonable approach [12].
