The Lancet Citizens’ Commission on Reimagining India’s Health System is an ambitious,
cross-sectoral endeavor to lay out the roadmap to achieving universal health coverage for the people of India. The Lancet is a leading international medical journal that has paved the way for medical reforms and global health discussions around the world.
The Commission on Reimagining India’s Health System will be the first participatory report of its kind to be published by the journal, and the first Commission devoted to India.
A guiding principle for this Commission is that structural change towards UHC can only be attained through consultative and participatory
engagement with the diverse sectors involved in health care and, most importantly, with India’s citizenry. The Lancet Commission has already brought together
leaders from academia, the scientific community, civil society, and private healthcare to spearhead this effort. We now aim to go beyond the traditional boundaries of expertise to actively engage stakeholders whose voices have
rarely been heard in previous reports: those who deliver healthcare and those who receive it. We hope you will join us in this initiative and follow developments on this webpage.
