Summary
Looking at the issue from a gender and human rights perspective, the book discusses provisions taken by the government in providing health care to patients in India while also examining how this has influenced society's perception of the disease as well as the patients themselves. The book explores in depth the dimensions of health-care accessibility, gender equity measures and strategies used by the State as well as the role played by civil society organizations and activists. Further, this book contributes to the fields of public health, policy studies, community health and gender, and is important for policymakers as well as NGOs and human rights activists working in this sector
