New Delhi: June 23, 2011
Human rights activist Binayak Sen called for making healthcare a legal entitlement for all. Speaking at the first meeting of the Steering Committee on Health, constituted by the Planning Commission to advise it on the Twelfth Five Year Plan (2012-17), Dr. Sen said the proposed National Health Act must be enacted to ensure healthcare for all as in the absence of such legislation effective implementation of schemes was not possible. The proposed Act would guarantee the right to comprehensive, quality healthcare at public expense in health institutions to all people.
