The Rajasthan Right to Health Care Act, passed by the Rajasthan State Legislative Assembly on March 21, 2023, draws attention to the issue of patients’ rights to healthcare, which rarely features in public debates. With the goal of ensuring ‘health for all’, and, conversely, no denial of healthcare to any citizen, the Act proposes to legally define collective and individual rights in healthcare, constitute state and district authorities, and institute grievance redressal and social accountability mechanisms. In a calibrated move, the Act also details the rights of doctors and health care providers while laying down the duties of both doctors and the government.
