By: Architi Batra

The medical professionals and patients share a sweet-bitter relation. The doctor is a demi-God if the patient is cured; and its negative counterpart if the patient suffers more. In recent years accounts of doctors being thrashed by patients and their families are making headlines around the world and are frequently circulated on social media as well. At any point in their lives, between 8% - 38% of health workers experience physical abuse. On the other hand, several doctors have also been accused of being motivated by greed and of pursuing unethical methods over time through the commercialization of the medical treatment.

Through this research, Niti Manthan aims to understand the legal framework to balance the interest of patient and doctors; and to facilitate inclusivity in the health law policymaking. The research is amalgamated with a global outlook, and catalyzing holistic healthcare policy which could benefit the masses at the grassroots of India.
