The Current Trade Paradigm and Women's Health Concerns in India: With Special Reference to the Proposed EU-India Free Trade Agreement
AbstractIndia is currently negotiating a Free Trade Agreement with the European Union, which includes not only liberalization of commodity trading, but also a wide range of chapters including deep services trade liberalization, full investment liberalization, and stricter IPR conditions than the TRIPS norms. An analysis and evaluation of health impacts of this FTA on Indian women is necessary. The need to indicate suitable policy interventions, both in the trade agreement and in the domestic socio economic environment, to maintain and encourage womenâ€™s access to health and healthcare, is undeniable. This study is an attempt to provide such an analysis in simple terms. [Paper II].
