The Lancet Citizens’ Commission on Reimagining India’s Health System is an ambitious, cross-sectoral endeavor that aims to lay out a citizens’ roadmap to achieving universal health coverage for the people of India. Our new webinar series is intended to serve as a platform for public health discourse in India, and a means for academics, practitioners and the public to engage on substantive and timely issues regarding universal health coverage in India.
The Centre for Health Equity Law and Policy, established by the Indian Law Society, uses the law as a tool for health transformation, embedding its work in the right to health as envisaged within India’s constitutional framework and her international commitments. It advocates for equity and justice in health through generation, sharing and use of knowledge that informs related law and policy.

About the Artist
Sunanda Khajuria is a visual artist who is deeply inspired by Chinese traditional painting techniques and draws her imagery from both the terrain of ethereal memory as well as from actual, physical landscapes she has visited. Through her psychedelic and startling dreamscapes, she attempts to create liminal spaces, capturing the experience of being ‘in transit.’ Using a lexicon of symbols, and visual metaphors, she skillfully interweaves images of transition and mobility and places them in a non-perspectival liminal space.
