Draft National Health Policy 2015

The primary aim of the National Health Policy, 2015, is to inform, clarify, strengthen and prioritize the role of the Government in shaping health systems in all its dimensions - investment in health, organisation and financing of healthcare services, prevention of diseases and promotion of good health through cross sectoral action, access to technologies, developing human resources, encouraging medical pluralism, building the knowledge base required for better health, financial protection strategies and regulation and legislation for health.

The  Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Government of India,  has prepared a draft National Health Policy, 2015. The stated goal of the policy is to attain "the highest possible level of good health and well-being, through a preventive and promotive health care orientation in all developmental policies, and universal access to good quality health care services without anyone having to face financial hardship as a consequence."

The Ministry has placed the draft policy in public domain for comments, suggestions and feedback.
