[Comment] Offline: The new politics of health in India

“There is a full-blown crisis in India.” So said Rahul Gandhi, President of the Indian National Congress Party, during a visit to the London School of Economics last month. He was talking about a “jobs crisis”. But there is also a health crisis, as five papers published across three Lancet specialty journals—Lancet Oncology, Global Health, and Public Health—set out this week. Now is the right moment to be debating the future health of the world’s largest democracy. In April, 2019, Indian voters will go to the polls in the most important general election since India achieved independence in 1947.
