The subject pertains to the distinctive domain focusing on inter-disciplinary knowledge, insight and learning has assumed crucial significance in recent times in our context. Ongoing deliberations both at intellectual and community level concentrating on social, political, economic and cultural facets revolving around Public Health, Clinical Research, Organ transplantation, Insurance, to name few, have undeniably influenced much warranted paradigm shift from a narrowly construed “Medical Law” to a much needed and deserved landscape of “Health Law”. This shift is considered to be not only justifiable but also legitimate. It is in fact fiercely advocated and accepted that concerns of `health’ as such, are not solely confined to `medicine or medicalization’. Hence, learning about “Healthcare Ethics and Law” in the broader social context of multiple competing perspectives continues to be a significant challenge.
