Oxfam India reached out to officials from 11 empowered groups which have been formed by India’s Ministry of Home Affairs under the Disaster Management Act 2005 to provide a comprehensive response to the COVID-19 crisis.

To protect and strengthen people’s health rights, we wrote to the empowered group on medical emergency management plan headed by Dr. V Paul, member, NITI Aayog. We urged the group, headed by Dr. Paul, to:

  • Ensure availability of affordable healthcare services by private providers
  • Ramp up availability of ambulances free of cost
  • Keep a check on the availability of essential medicines in remote areas
