The IPA has urged the government to amend its draft Charter of Patients Rights to include what it calls the "right to know about medicines." The draft charter, which was released last month by the Union ministry of health and family welfare, contains 17 different medical facets, including the right to emergency care, second opinion, the right to non-discrimination, safety and quality care and the right to be heard and seek redressal.
