About the Webinar Topic:
The potential of pandemic to cause global destabilization calls for robust pandemic preparedness plans with supportive health legislation. Few national and international studies have investigated legal preparedness in case of a pandemic. This webinar will review India’s legal preparedness in the face of COVID 19 Pandemic. This webinar proposes to review and analyze seminal publications pertinent to pandemic preparedness and relevant legal frameworks in India. Current legal frameworks in India are largely ‘policing’ in nature.
These provisions seem to be adequate to deal with small scale emergencies but do not appear to be sufficient for large scale health crises during pandemics. India needs a critical mass of public health legislations to make impact and not police acts to control epidemics. This study aims to assist policy makers to create comprehensive pandemic preparedness plans, translating preparedness plans, translating preparedness ‘on paper’ to ‘in practice’.
