India: Health Officials to Press For National Insurance Policy for People Living With HIV/AIDS

February 2, 2011

"India could soon see a national medical insurance policy for people living with HIV," Times of India reports. Though HIV coverage is currently "excluded from all insurance policies available in the country ... Union health ministry officials [have] said that HIV/AIDS ... [is] now [considered to be] a 'manageable health problem' ... [it] should be included in medical insurance policies," the news service writes. India's National AIDS Control Organization (NACO) will press the issue during a meeting with insurance companies and the Insurance Regulatory Development Agency, scheduled for Thursday (Sinha, 2/2).
