Chandra believes that the two countries have similar problems with access to and quality of healthcare. He argues that the US system is not broken, but that it does have two main problems: lack of universal coverage and uneven quality of care. He believes that these problems can be solved with better regulation and more government involvement. Chandra also discusses the importance of good health for worker productivity. He argues that while better healthcare can lead to higher worker productivity, it is not the only factor that is important. Other factors, such as environmental quality and prenatal care, are also important." Watch Via Times of India on Youtube
