Repository of Health Legislations in India

This compilation of legislation related to health in India grew out of our work on regulation, accountability, and monitoring of health care services in the country. We have compiled this repository of health legislations in India for easy access to the acts, rules, schedules and notifications. The present compilation is restricted to health legislations that are within the purview of the Union Government. This body of work builds upon similar compilation put together by Sunil Nandraj and Anagha Khot. Most of the acts and rules provided in the database were collected by them over a period of time from different sources.
We hope this repository would be useful for bureaucrats, policymakers, programme planners, implementers, consumers, activists, researchers, journalists, funders, health workers, among others. We intend to cover health legislations of the state governments and update the repository periodically. This is a work-in-progress and while we have tried to make it comprehensive, we are conscious that the compilation may not be complete, we look forward to your comments and suggestions to strengthen it.
