The paper discusses that although health problems need to be controlled by evolving an efficient and responsive healthcare services, an appropriate social policy which addresses the poor living conditions and social arrangements could act as a catalyst for health improvement. Health improvement is a complex phenomenon and cannot occur just by isolated inputs. It is mediated by a number of factors which co-exist which needs to be tackled by an action programme. The inter-sectoral action needs to be recognized for achieving any health improvement in Bihar. What is also needed is a 'Bihar discourse' instead of 'Bihar bashing'.
