Being a developing country, India has faced many challenges since freedom concerning the economy, health, and education. Providing healthcare facilities to all strata of society was a monumental task. By formulating National Health Policy in 1983, India took its first initiative in this context. Timely revision of the policy in 2002 and 2017, according to the requirements and implementation of many national healthcare programs, has enabled it to advance in the healthcare system. India now aims at bringing uniformity in the healthcare facilities provided by the government to all the people anywhere in India at minimal expenditure. In this regard, universal health coverage has been introduced as a part of the Ayushman Bharat Yojana to reduce the cost of treatment to patients. Slowly, India is heading toward sustainability in terms of quality health care assessible to all sectors of society. To bring uniformity of health care by integrating different healthcare systems according to the choice and needs of the patients, with minimal financial burden and compromise in quality, the “One Nation, One Health System by 2030” agenda has been introduced. Here, the formulation of the National Health Policy and its timely renewal and the role of Ayurveda in achieving its goals have been discussed.
