This website aims at bringing together fragmentary facts, concepts and analysis in order to create an integrated understanding of the health system in India. We hope to focus on previously undescribed areas within a health system especially on the community of individuals, organisations and networks who have the power to significantly affect health in India.

The site is a Wiki website similar to Wikipedia and consists of a number of interlinked encyclopaedia format articles, images and PDF documents as well as links to numerous other webpages and websites.

The site has been created by Lalit Narayan and hopes to evolve into a collaborative effort of a number of voluntary scholars with experience and expertise in a variety of disciplines including medicine, public health, epidemiology, social theory, political economy and history representing a variety of voices and realities from the local to the global level.

We hope not to merely reflect the existing ground reality of health in India but also be part of the process of working towards Health For All through the creation of a number useful resources for practical use in the struggle for a healthier nation and world.
