Summary of activity

What this paper demonstrates is that the mindset of MDBs is so shaped by neoliberal ideas that, even during a pandemic clearly demonstrating the failures of this approach in healthcare, they continue to espouse them. In some ways, this is not surprising as during crisis, humans tend more than usual to use existing idea, frameworks and tropes to shape action. Thus, the health loans to India in response to the pandemic appear at first as though they will be largely supporting the public sector. However, as one reads the details, it becomes clearer that much of the surge funding will prop-up (struggling) private hospitals.
