The Rajasthan Right to Health Bill was passed on March 21, 2023. The Bill charts out patient rights and provides a mechanism to ensure proper implementation of the rights. However, private doctors have been protesting this Bill.
Suno India’s Menaka Rao tries to understand the discontentment. She spoke to Chhaya Pachauli, a health rights activist in Rajasthan representing Jan Swasthya Abhiyan in Rajasthan, a network of health rights activists and organisations across the country. She also spoke to Dr Tarun Patni, a practising pediatrician from Jaipur and former president of Jaipur Medical Association and Dr Ajay Chaudhary, president of the All Rajasthan In-Service Doctors Association that is supporting the strike.
