Linking Aadhar Card

JoDha's picture
<p>Hi Arpit,</p> <p>Belated Diwali greetings.</p> <p>Yes, I have been hearing the same regarding the linking of aadhar card. Know that as per Supreme Court guideline, IT IS NOT MANDATORY. According to the government system,&nbsp;<span style="color: rgb(34, 49, 63); font-family: Raleway, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 22.4px;">Aadhar intergration was expected to solve the issue of duplication of ART centres for HIV. Also&nbsp;under the Targeted Intervention Programme of NACO that works on preventive interventions, Aadhaar linkage also aims at reducing the "lost to follow up cases"&nbsp;</span><span style="color: rgb(34, 49, 63); font-family: Raleway, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 22.4px;">who have dropped out of the ART centres and discontinued their HIV treatment. In overall, though th measure is good, I am hesistant where rights to privacy is concerned. If given an option, then I will go to other clinic/diagnostic centre who has not yet applied this tactic of linking the Aadhar card.&nbsp;</span></p> <p><span style="color: rgb(34, 49, 63); font-family: Raleway, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 22.4px;">Hence, there are many medical centres typing up with Aadhar, I would suggest that you comply with the same unless you are able to afford your treatment and care elsewhere. Also, if the rules has been flouted, then we have a very strong lawyer network called "Lawyer Collective" who are well versed in HIV law and they will be able to sue and take the matter to court.</span></p> <p><span style="color: rgb(34, 49, 63); font-family: Raleway, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 22.4px;">All the best,</span></p> <p><span style="color: rgb(34, 49, 63); font-family: Raleway, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 22.4px;">Mumbaiyyagal aka Jyoti Dhawale</span></p>

Dear Sameer,

Dear Sameer, In hospitals or lab, your name will be required. Though confidentiality is very much assured as per hospital norms. What kind of tests are you looking for? If you are looking for HIV test or VL or CD4 test, Jaipur has a good network of Metropolis lab or SRL or Dr Reddy’s lab. These labs are trustworthy. Apologies for late reply as you know, it is festival season here hence tied up. Love and Light, JoDha
