Established by the Indian Law Society, the Centre for Health Equity, Law & Policy uses the law as a tool for health transformation, embedding its work in the right to health as envisaged within India's constitutional framework and her international commitments. It advocates for equity and justice in health through generation, sharing and use of knowledge that informs related law and policy.
