For India to achieve 2 hospital beds per 1,000 people, we need 17.5 lakh additional beds and Rs 3.7 lakh crore investment by 2025, according to a study. This means, there will be more Avinash, Aman, Tanya and Rishabh - 4 children who succumbed to dengue this month. On We The People, the haunting stories of two families who lost their kids to dengue for alleged denial of timely treatment by hospitals. We ask: What's killing people - dengue or denial of care? Has the pursuit of medicine become all about profit and business rather than passion and service? Should private hospitals be mandated to reserve some beds for the poor? And does the dengue scare expose the class apartheid of India's hospitals?
