A Critique of the Draft National Health Research Policy 2011

The newly created Department of Health Research of the central health ministry has formulated the draft National Health Research Policy 2011, improving upon the 2010 version. A critical examination of the contents from a health researcher-practitioner's perspective shows a number of shortcomings: a lack of clarity in the terminology, a simplistic interpretation of equity, and a lack of alignment of local research priorities with national health programmes.
