Draft National Health Bill – A Public health and Gender Analysis

A Workshop

12th and 13th December 2009, New Delhi

Sama is organizing a two-day workshop on the draft National Health Bill, which is a critical first step towards legal recognition of the right to health and health care in India and its operationalisation, and therefore necessitates an in-depth understanding and analysis of its provisions. This workshop follows several requests that we have received from organisations and provides an opportunity to develop a comprehensive understanding of the Draft Bill based on a public health and gender analysis.

The workshop will address the following:

  • * the salient features of the bill
  • * the key thematic areas
  • * role and regulation of the private health care sector
  • * centre / state relationship under the mandate for a central law on health

The resource persons for the workshop are – Shruti Pandey [an advocate & senior consultant with the National Health Systems Resource Centre (NHSRC)], Renu Khanna (SAHAJ, Baroda) and Abhay Shukla (SATHI, Pune). This workshop will be in English and is designed primarily for Programme Co-ordinators.

Participation is only by invitation from Sama.
