Health Ministry, AIIMS to set up National Death Registry
The Union Health Ministry, in collaboration with AIIMS, will come up with a National Death Registry.

The registry will contain data about deaths, including causes, from hospitals across the country.

“The objective is to have a database about cause of deaths in hospitals across India. This will help policy-makers have a better understanding of disease outbreaks so as to optimise resources and healthcare facilities in respective regions,” said AIIMS computerisation chairperson Deepak Agrawal....
