National Digital Health Mission Data Policy Consultation: Not now, not like this, not without all of us! #SaveOurPrivacy

We wrote to the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare and the National Health Authority after the Delhi High Court directed the government to decide concerns surrounding the consultation for the National Digital Health Mission's Health Data Management Policy in accordance with existing laws, rules and policies. The representation was sent by Dr. Satendra Singh, the petitioner before the Delhi High Court and it highlights how the consultation process is still in violation of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act 2016, Official Languages Act 1963 and the Pre-Legislative Consultation Policy 2014. The representation urges the government to re-calculate 30 days for submission of feedback after implementing recommended changes and to extend the deadline.
